Sandy Moffat’s portrait of Tom Nairn

In 2012 Democratic Left Scotland commissioned Sandy Moffat to paint a portrait of Scottish political theorist Tom Nairn. It was unveiled at the launch of a collection of his work “Old Nations, Auld Enemies, New Times, Selected Essays” on Monday 15th September 2014 in the Martin Hall, New College Edinburgh. The collection was compiled by Pete Ramand and Jamie Maxwell and is available here.

There’s a drawing for the portrait currently on show in Peacock Visual Arts. Aberdeen as part of Sandy’s exhibition “Paintings as Arguments”.
