Scottish Art

Preconceived ideas of Scottish Art can include lovely landscapes, tartan and stags. Scottish artists have been exhibiting on the international stage for centuries and our collection shows the breadth of their talent. As well as celebrating their creativity, our displays also demonstrate the impact Scottish artists have had on artistic styles and continue to have on contemporary visual art.

Narrative

All art stems from a strong narrative. From the earliest drawings on cave walls to contemporary public art, the artist motivation is to share their stories and experiences. This language of art is shown throughout our collection in many ways, some are easy to interpret while others require further exploration.
