John Bellany (1942-2013) was a renowned contemporary artist who was born in Port Seton, East Lothian. He frequently painted people and scenes from the coastal communities he know so well. Later in his life, having achieved an international reputation, he moved to Barga in Tuscany where the landscape seems to have inspired a brighter mood in some of his work. Bellany's move to Barga encouraged the development of twinning links with the area where he grew up, which has led to a strong and proactive mutual relationship developing. John Bellany's paintings can be found in public collections around the world.
