Limited edition screen-print Wish You were Here (Phew what a Scorcher) from The Haymarket Print Suite by Bruce McLean. Add vibrancy to your collection of Scottish contemporary art with this bold screen-print with its ‘scorching’ red hot and yellow summer colours.  

The Haymarket Print Suite, published in 1990, was the result of a collaborative project called ‘Platform for Modern Art’ undertaken by the National Galleries of Scotland, Art in Partnership Scotland and Scotrail. Alan Davie, John Bellany, Adrian Wiszniewski and Bruce McLean, four leading Scottish artists, were selected by Richard Calvocoressi, Director Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art (1987-2007) and commissioned to create one of the four images that make up the Suite.

The artists were not given a specific theme for the Suite but were advised that the prints should be colourful and eye-catching to attract attention on the busy railway platform. The Suite was published in an edition of 30 and printed by Peacock Printmakers in Aberdeen on Arches velin 300gsm paper, each print is signed and numbered by the artist. A set was permanently framed to hang on the platform at Haymarket Station in Edinburgh. Unveiled in October 1990, the original set was on display there until 1999.

Bruce McLean (born 1944) is a Scottish sculptor, performance artist and painter. McLean was born in Glasgow and studied at Glasgow School of Art and Central St Martins. During the 1980s he became interested in social issues, such as wealth and class, themes which are reflected in his paintings and screen-prints from this period. His work can be seen in the National Galleries of Scotland Collection.
