Until 1st February

The Scottish Gallery, in Edinburgh’s New Town gallery district, is hosting an exhibition marking the daily drawings of eminent Scottish Colourist John Duncan Fergusson. Living the life of a dedicated aesthete in Paris, in the early 1900’s, he was a leading figure of its artist community and a paragon of Bohemian life.

Never out without a sketchbook, he would be drawing and recording obsessively, as displayed in this show comprising 45 works on paper, revealing many previously-unseen works from across the artist’s long, extraordinary life.
