Running from November 5-8 with a private view on the 4th, the show features 30 oils, 30 watercolours and a selection of prints offered by the two dealers.

The focus is on 18th and 19th century traditional paintings, with subjects including birds, hunting scenes, topographical images and genre pictures.

Following on from last winter’s exhibition at Balhousie Castle, Perth, which was Innes’ first such show for more than 20 years, this latest display returns to the same venue.

A paper catalogue lists all the works – plus the ‘Rules of Engagement’. These include that all prices are non-negotiable, and that those wishing for measurements in centimetres rather than inches should multiply by 2.54.

“We appreciate that our contemporaries, in their late 60s and early 80s, have enough pictures to last a lifetime; the last thing they need is more”, the catalogue reads. “But if they have offspring or young friends who they think might appreciate what we have to offer, please ask us to forward a copy of our catalogue to them.”
