McINTOSH PATRICK - RETROSPECTIVE - 1987

Here's Dundee's most well known artist, James McIntosh Patrick, signing copies of his catalogue for some of the thousands who went along to see his retrospective exhibition held at the McManus Gallery in 1987. The show, which tied in with his 80th birthday, broke all attendance records for an exhibition at the gallery - 45,000 in fact! That's about a quarter of Dundee's population I reckon.
A few years later, he appeared in an episode of The Broons in the Sunday Post under the guise of Patrick McIntosh. The cartoon strip featured his most famous painting "Tay Bridge From My Studio Window" - with steam train and Magdalen Green recreated on the Broons kitchen wall!!
