The Collection of Billy and Pamela Connolly

The life of Scotland's favourite comedian and his wife needs no introduction.

Following the sale of Candacraig, their home in Strathdon, Billy & Pamela Connolly entrusted the disposal of some of their art collection to the McEwan Gallery.

The collection exemplifies their interest in the surreal, the slightly off-kilter and the amusing, although there are one or two traditional pieces as well, reflecting the Scottish heritage of Candacraig.

The collection includes work by Beryl Cook, John Bellany, Peter Howson, David M Bowers, James Grainger and James McNaught, while the traditional is represented by The Christmas Pudding by William MacDuff (1824-1881) and an antique print of Joseph Farquharson's Fishing on the Dee.

With nearly 30 items available to purchase, this is a fascinating collection from the private home of Billy and Pamela Connolly.

The McEwan Gallery, a family business, specialising in quaility paintings of the last three centuries, was founded over forty years ago. Although dealing primarily in works by Scottish artists, including contemporary examples, the Gallery also carries a small selection of English & Dutch works. With a lifetime of experience in the art world, we welcome you to browse through our collection at leisure. Peter wrote the definitive Dictionary of Scottish Art & Architecture, available from the Gallery.

Valuations for insurance and probate are undertaken as well as providing a restoration service.

We pride ourselves on offering London quality at provincial prices. Enquiries are always welcome. There is parking space beside the unusual listed house, built in 1902 by the Swiss artist Rodolphe Christen.
