Ian Fleming studied at the Glasgow School of Art (GSA) from 1924–1929. After travelling to London, Paris, the south of France and Spain, Fleming returned to Glasgow and joined the GSA as a lecturer in 1932. He remained on the staff until the outbreak of the Second World War and returned for two additional spells of teaching in 1941 and 1946. Although known primarily as a printmaker and watercolourist, Fleming completed this striking double-portrait of the painters Robert Colquhoun and Robert MacBryde in 1937/1938.
