Long in and became his national organizer during the Great Depressionwhen Long launched the Share Our Wealth society. Laing has never been able to resist a challenge. On the anniversary of the London attacks in the painting was exhibited by the National Army Museum. Within that short period of his adhesion to a Pop language in painting, he moved seamlessly from French nouvelle vague cinema, as in Cleo from 5 to 7 and Anna Karinato the giddy speed of dare-devil racing and gravity-defying airborne pyrotechnics by way of momentous events that changed the political landscape.

Working in New York in the early s, his paintings of icons of popular culture made him a major figure in the Pop Art movement. He later became a prominent figurative sculptor. He returned to Britain, buying and restoring Kirkell Castle, a turreted medieval tower house north of Inverness. His command of the very methods and formal strategies that had made his early Pop paintings so beguiling here take a much darker turn, as they do, too, in the celebrity portraits of the great Amy Winehouse, deadlocked in a fierce embrace and vampiric kiss with the husband whose drug habits and sexual infidelities helped speed her self-destructive impulses.

Portrait of Jack Mitchell, Gerald Laing, Laing's own brand, blending cynical critique with a formal clarity of image and line, stands out for the courage of his longheld convictions. You are one of the most humble,down to earth, great hearted people I have ever met, yet so strong for enduring all you have in this life. So it is fitting that we should now stage the first retrospective exhibition of his work as a painter, sculptor and printmaker, spanning half a century.
