Biographical history

William Hardie is an acknowledged authority on Scottish painting. Born in 1941, he was educated at Ipswich School, Ipswich, England; Glasgow Academy, Glasgow, Scotland; and Glasgow University, where he read modern languages. He was successively: Research Assistant to the Fine Arts Department of Glasgow University; Keeper of Art and then Deputy Director of the Dundee Art Gallery and Museum, Dundee, Scotland; he was also Visiting Lecturer in the History of Art in the French department of Dundee University. He joined Christie's in Scotland and set up the Scottish Pictures Department, which played a major role in the transformation of the international market for Scottish art. He formed William Hardie Ltd , fine art consultants and valuers in Glasgow in 1984, as consultants specializing in Scottish paintings, opening the Washington Gallery in 1986 and the William Hardie Gallery in Glasgow's West Regent Street in 1990. William Hardie has pioneered the renewed interest in Scottish artists such as Orchardson , the Glasgow School, George Dutch Davidson, the Scottish Colourists, Stanley Cursiter, William McCance and Donald Bain, while the younger contemporary Scottish artists have been selectively presented at his gallery. Peter Howson had his first Glasgow solo exhibition there in 1986. Hardie has written numerous articles and catalogues and translated the Larousse Dictionary of Modern Art. His books, Scottish Painting: 1937-1939 (1976) and the subsequent Scottish Painting: 1837 to the Present (1990) are widely acclaimed. William Hardie has been a governor of the Glasgow School of Art since 1996.
