Stephen-Conroy-Nude-Study-wA PAINTING of particular interest to Helensburgh and district was on show and for sale at the Christmas Exhibition at Ewan Mundy Fine Art in Glasgow from November 28 to December 22. 

'Nude Study', by highly regarded Helensburgh artist Stephen Conroy, is an 18 x 14 inches charcoal drawing on paper which was originally purchased at the Glasgow School of Art Degree Show in 1987, the year it was drawn.

Inscribed by the artist on the reverse side, it was offered for sale at £4,750, and has since been sold for an undisclosed price.

Stephen — whose paintings can sell at art auctions for as much as £100,000 — was born in Braeholm Hospital in Helensburgh in 1964, and brought up in Renton.

After living for some years in Helensburgh, he now lives near Cardross and does most of his painting at his studio in Alexandria.

A painting on show at the gallery's autumn exhibition from October 15 to November 11 was very much older, dating from 1875. It showed Upper Morelaggan on Loch Longside, the scene recently of major excavations of a rural settlement which dates back to 1501.

The artist was Dunfermline-born Waller Hugh Paton, who has been described as the leading exponent of the Pre-Raphaelite landscape in Scotland and who exhibited views — mostly painted on Arran — at the Royal Scottish Academy from 1854. The watercolour, which is signed and dated, is 4 1/2 inches x 6 1/2 inches, and was on offer at £1,800 but has not yet found a buyer.
