The Italian Connection

City Art Centre, Edinburgh

NOW CLOSED

Whether as immigrants, tourists or students with overseas residencies, artists have long travelled between Scotland and Italy, prompting a cultural exchange in both directions. This exhibition uses examples from painting, print and sculpture to show how artists from both nations have been learning from each other since the 18th century. Find out more from the Edinburgh Museums website.
