The Scottish National Gallery celebrates the preeminent Scottish collectors of Impressionist art (30 July–13 November) – figures with fortunes made in the shipbuilding or textile industries who acquired works by artists such as Pissarro, Monet and Degas ahead of their English contemporaries. More than 120 works reveal the depth of the National Galleries of Scotland’s holdings in this area, with works including Paul Gauguin’s Vision of the Sermon (1888) and Edgar Degas’s Portrait of Diego Martelli (1879). The exhibition will also present a lightbox display of the previously undiscovered self-portrait by Van Gogh which was recently identified by an x-ray taken of the back of the artist’s Head of a Peasant Women (1885).
