Timed to coincide with the artist’s 80th birthday, Leon Morrocco: Long Road Home at the Royal Scottish Academy in Edinburgh is set to position him as one of the most important Scottish painters of his generation. This exhibition highlights lesser-known aspects of Morrocco’s long career and offers an insight into his practice.

Although born in Edinburgh, Leon Morrocco RSA has not lived in Scotland since 1979. This substantial survey exhibition charts his ‘long road home’ via Australia and other locations. Morrocco is the RSA’s longest-standing Academician, having been elected an Associate of the Academy in 1971 at the age of 29.
