Scottish Women Artists Transforming Tradition

8 April 2022

This exhibition of 50 works at the Sainsbury Centre (9 April–3 July) shines a light on some of the leading Scottish women artists of the last century. Drawing largely on the holdings of the Fleming Collection of Scottish art, the artworks displayed range from Mabel Pryde’s moody portrait of The Artist’s Daughter, Nancy as a Harlequin, to the contemporary photographic work of the visual artist, Sakai Machache, also taking in the likes of Joan Eardley, Wilhelmina Barns-Graham and Caroline Walker. Highlights include one of the Beatrice Huntington’s best-known portraits, The Cellist (c. 1925), a painting recently acquired by the Fleming Collection, which exemplifies the artist’s experiments with modernism. Find out more from the Sainsbury Centre’s website.
