Harry Holland was born in Glasgow and trained at St. Martin’s School of Art from 1965 to 1969. Since the 1970s, this extraordinary classical artist has had over thirty solo exhibitions and participated in countless group exhibitions worldwide. He is widely regarded as one of Britain's finest figurative painters, producing technically brilliant and very beautiful paintings.
His style is distinctive and immediately recognisable, the paintings are suggestive in the sense that they imply situations, events, or relationships that are not directly expressed, thus imbuing an engaging sense of mystery. His work has a substantial international following amongst collectors and has found its way into numerous public collections worldwide including the Tate Gallery; British Museum; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; National Museum of Wales; the Portrait Gallery of Canada; Welsh Arts Council; European Parliament collection; Belgian National Collection; and the Fitzwilliam Museum,Cambridge.
