Coltrane’s painting set to fetch £4k
London: Robbie Coltrane of Harry Potter fame is set to put up his painting of a train for auction.
The work is expected to fetch 4,000 pounds when it goes under the hammer at a Glasgow auction this week, reports the Scotsman.
Coltrane completed the painting after receiving commission while studying at Glasgow School of Art in the 1970s.
This was before he shot to fame with ‘Harry Potter’ where he played ‘Hagrid’ and criminal psychologist ‘Fitz’ in the television series ‘Cracker’.
The painting is the first one to be put up by the actor for auction.
McTear`s Scottish Contemporary Art Auction will showcase other artworks on Wednesday including 58 drawings by the Glaswegian artist Gerard Burns.
