McTear's Auctioneers will begin its Scottish Contemporary Art Auction, tomorrow (February 10).

The sale promises a stunning selection of more than 300 paintings and drawings by many of Scotland's most celebrated and successful artists.

The Albanian Customs

(valued at �10k-�15k)

The line-up runs like a 'who's who' of the country's top contemporary artists and their modern masterpieces.

Star lots for sale will include Peter Howson OBE, John Bellany CBE, Alison Watt OBE, Barbara Rae CBE, Muriel Barclay, Ethel Walker, Gerard Burns, James Fullarton, Alexandra Gardner and Mary Gallagher.

A number of first timers will also be included.

Among the future Picassos are Gary Morrow, Lynne Johnston, Siobhan O'Hehir, Fiona Wilson, Michael Hepburn, Keith McIntyre, Bryan Evans and Emma Semple.

And don't be fooled by the event's title...

While it is primarily a celebration of Scottish art, works by Rainer Fetting, Mervyn Goode, Giorgio Brunacci, Shanti Panchal and Yuko Shiraishi will represent Germany, England, Italy, India and Japan respectively.

The auction promises a great opportunity for collectors to get their finger on the pulse of contemporary Scottish art.
