The Scottish Gallery, Edinburgh: Modern Masters X

5th – 29th February

The Scottish Gallery, in Edinburgh’s New Town gallery district, hosts the tenth in its Modern Masters series, this time focusing on the collected work of Alexander Goudie (1933–2004), father of  artist, art historian and broadcaster Lachlan Goudie, who provides an insightful essay into the work of his father in the exhibition’s accompanying catalogue.

A selection of paintings of Venice by Victoria Crowe shows the profound impact the city has had on her popular and acclaimed work, and recent acquisitions by painters Robert Henderson Blyth, Adam Bruce Thomson and Willie Wilson afford an insight into the spirit of place evoked by the Edinburgh School. Fine early works by Dame Elizabeth BlackadderAlberto Morrocco, and Sir Robin Philipson are also on show, among other delights.

A catalogue is available to purchase to accompany the exhibition, and an in-Gallery talk by Lachlan Goudie will take place on 15th February, 2 – 3pm, when he will discuss this exhibition and his father’s work (contact the Gallery for availability).
