Walk St Andrews through the artist’s eye – follow the map (below) and you will find 15 different paintings by Harold Riley from many visits to St Andrews over decades. Each painting is situated in the location it was first seen from, so you will be able to share in Harold’s exact view and some of his insights while working.
“I first visited St Andrews as a young boy in 1946 and fell in love with the town. My relationship with St Andrews and Alfred Dunhill has been one of the joys of my life. I always tell my friends that I do not know anyone who visited St Andrews that did not fall in love with the place. I certainly have been in love with St Andrews since the first time I went there. I hope this exhibition captures that and will be enjoyed by everyone who sees it. I hope that the people of St Andrews will agree with us that the selection we have chosen represents what is so special about this town.” – Harold Riley
