Born in Shrewsbury, John Laurie attended the Glasgow School of Art (GSA) from 1933–1936. He returned to the GSA in 1953 to teach drawing and painting and remained on the staff until his untimely death in 1972. The sitter in this painting had also been a student of the GSA and, like Laurie, returned to teach at the School – this time in the architecture department. In this portrait, Laurie depicts him set against a backdrop of the School's Mackintosh Building. This painting was exhibited at the GSA at a retrospective exhibition held in May 1973.

This painting was lost in the fire in The Mackintosh Building at The Glasgow School of Art on 23rd May 2014.
