In his 1965 self portrait, McCall has cast himself as the respectable artist in his studio, standing by the easel, brushes in hand. He looks self-assured, nobly erect, his features gentle and impassive. David Coombs wrote ‘McCall was a shy man, quiet and reticent, characteristics not hidden even in later years’.
