Modern Scottish Women

Scottish National Gallery, Edinburgh


Painters and Sculptors 1885-1965

This revelatory exhibition of work by Scottish women artists will concentrate on painters and sculptors. It covers the period from 1885, when Fra Newbery became Director of Glasgow School of Art, until 1965, the year of Anne Redpath’s death. The eighty years which lay between these events saw an unprecedented number of Scottish women train and practise as artists. More than 90 works will be shown, drawn from the National Galleries of Scotland’s holdings and other public collections from throughout the UK, as well as from private collections.
