Exhibited at the Barbara Toll Gallery in 1983, Campbell created this work after arriving from his native Glasgow to study in Brooklyn at the Pratt Institute, the recipient of a Fulbright scholarship. Within days of the show, the doyen of the New York art critics, John Russell, fully endorsed the painterly qualities of a young, unknown Scottish artist in his New York Times review. Campbell died at only 54 in 2007.

Sandy Moffat writes in his obituary for The Guardian, "His monumental paintings - vivid in imagery, complex in detail and rich in formal invention, depicting intriguing narratives inspired by the novels of PG Wodehouse and Bram Stoker - stunned Scottish audiences and artists alike. Never apologetic about his identity - "I'm the only one doing Scottish Painting" - he proceeded to explore and confront the varied extremes of the national psyche."

The proceeds from the sale of the collection on Ann and Norma Roulet's African and Oceanic Artifacts, which takes place at Gray's on November 6th will benefit the Cleveland Institute of Art's new Ann & Norman Roulet Student and Alumni Gallery.
