The ‘Two Roberts’: Robert Colquhoun (1914–1962) and Robert MacBryde (1913–1966), were two of the most important and celebrated Scottish artists of the twentieth century. Colquhoun studied at

THE TO ROBERTS Robert Colquhoun & Robert MacBryde

Glasgow School of Art where he met Robert MacBryde. The two became lovers. They were part of a celebrated Soho group that included Francis Bacon and Lucian Freud. Their post-cubist work – much influenced by Picasso – became enormously successful. In the 1950s they established worldwide reputations. This catalogue with over 90 illustrations accompanies the only exhibition to show both artists together. The authors refer to previously unpublished letters and explore the ‘Two Roberts’ individual art practices as well as works they executed together.

work of more than eighty contemporary artists, it includes Turner Prize winners Douglas Gordon, Simon Starling and Martin Boyce. The Generation Reader is a resource for the future, an illustrated guide to the ideas, events and debates that shaped a generation. It presents key historical texts alongside specially commissioned essays by Nicola White, Dr Sarah Lowndes and Professor Andrew Patrizio, with an introduction by novelist Louise Welsh. These two books have been produced to accompany Generation, a Scotland-wide exhibition that will take place in more than fifty venues across the country in the summer of 2014.

American Impressionism: A New Vision 1880–1900 Katherine Bourguignon, Frances Fowle and Richard Brettell 295 X 245MM | 160PP | MARCH 2014 125 COLOUR ILLUSTRATIONS 978 1 906270 70 4 | £20 PAPER PUBLISHED BY NATIONAL GALLERIES OF SCOTLAND AND HAZAN, FRANCE TRADE ENQUIRIES YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS

The story of American Impressionism begins with Mary Cassatt and John Singer Sargent, who worked alongside their French colleagues and helped shape the avant-garde trends of their time. They

appropriated certain aspects of impressionist art and invented others, adapting their individual styles for an American audience. Cassatt, Sargent, and James McNeill Whistler, along with American artists whose names are less familiar to European audiences, such as William Merritt Chase and Childe Hassam were highly trained, widely travelled, cosmopolitan painters who sought inspiration and praise both at home and abroad. American Impressionism: A New Vision offers a fresh exploration of the beginning of an American engagement with the techniques of Impressionism on both sides of the Atlantic.

In his essay Michael Clarke, director of the Scottish National Gallery, Edinburgh, discusses the development of the game while art historian Kenneth McConkey places the works of John Lavery in the context of the sport of golf.

Michael Clarke and Kenneth McConkey 235 X 195MM| 72PP | JUNE 2014 60 ILLUSTRATIONS 978 1 906270 67 4 | ÂŁ9.95 PAPER

J. D. Fergusson (1874–1961) is one of the four artists known collectively as the Scottish Colourists. Fergusson lived in Paris from 1907 until 1913 where, more than any of his Scottish contemporaries, he embraced the latest advances in French painting. Fergusson is most celebrated for depictions of the female form, but he also painted landscapes in England, France and Scotland, that were of great significance and produced sculptures throughout his career. This book includes essays by Alice Strang, Elizabeth Cumming and Sheila McGregor, which offer a fascinating new insight into a Scottish artist of international standing.

From Death to Death and other Small Tales: Masterpieces from the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art and the D. Daskalopoulos Collection Keith Hartley, Lucy Askew and Richard Flood 265 X 215MM | 152PP | MARCH 2013 100 COLOUR ILLUSTRATIONS 978 1 906270 57 5 | £ 19.95 HARDBACK

This book brings together works from one of the most important private collections of modern and contemporary art, the D.Daskalopoulos Collection, with key pieces from the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art. Providing a new context for both collections, it specifically focuses on the theme of the body, investigating the many and varied approaches that artists have taken across several decades when dealing with this most fundamental of subjects. Highlighting the work of artists such as Marcel Duchamp, Pablo

Picasso, Louise Bourgeois, Joseph Beuys, Robert Gober, Matthew Barney, Marina Abramović and Sarah Lucas, the publication documents the confrontations and dialogues staged between the two collections, and provides a rich insight into one of the most compelling and provocative themes in twentieth and twenty-first century visual art.


Witches & Wicked Bodies provides an innovative, rich survey of images of European witchcraft, from the sixteenth century to the present day. It focuses on the representation of women and the enduring stereotypes they embody, ranging from hideous old crones to beautiful young

from growing up in a Port Seton fishing family–and their elevation of that life onto a symbolic level–were at odds with the decorative, drawing-room pictures of much contemporary Scottish painting in the 1960s. The full colour catalogue illustrates paintings, watercolours, drawings and prints from all the key periods of the artist’s career.

S.J. Peploe Alice Strang, Frances Fowle and Elizabeth Cumming with a foreword by Guy Peploe seductresses. Such imagery has ancient precedents and has been repeatedly ­re-­invented by artists over the centuries. Petherbridge introduces this fascinating subject and includes insightful catalogue entries on each of the exhibited works. A wide range of artists are represented including Dürer, Cranach, Goya, Fuseli, Blake, Burra, Sherman and Rego.

John Bellany (1942–2013) helped change the course of painting in Scotland. His intensely felt paintings of fisherfolk and their precarious life at sea were a direct challenge to the much diluted Scottish colourist tradition and its landscapes and still lifes. The sheer size and raw emotion of Bellany’s canvases, their depictions of a way of life that the artist knew

Samuel John Peploe (1871–1935) was the oldest of the four artists popularly known as the Scottish Colourists. This lavishly illustrated catalogue, based on new research, is the first major monograph on the artist written in the last decade. Born in Edinburgh, Peploe was drawn to France

and returned to paint there frequently, moving to Paris in 1910. He became acquainted with the Parisian avant-garde, his own painting style giving way to a more contemporary and expressive approach, using rich colours applied with more structured brushstrokes. In 1912 Peploe returned to Edinburgh and slowly began to build a successful career as an exhibiting artist. From around 1914 until his death, Peploe sought to paint the perfect still life. A modest selection of props, including roses or tulips, fans, books, fruits and Chinese vases were carefully placed in infinite varieties on patterned drapery. In 1929 he explained: ‘There is so much in mere objects, flowers, leaves, jugs, what not–colours, forms, relation–I can never see mystery coming to an end.’

A Shepherd’s Life: Paintings of Jenny Armstrong by Victoria Crowe Julie Lawson and Mary Taubman 195 X 175MM | 64PP | REPRINTED 2013 25 COLOUR ILLUSTRATIONS 1 903278 02 3 | £9.95 HARDBACK

A Shepherd’s Life centres on Jenny Armstrong, born in 1903 at the farm of Fairliehope, who spent her life working as a shepherd in the Pentland Hills. In a series of remarkable paintings made over twenty years and based on close observation, Victoria Crowe, one of Scotland’s foremost painters, pays tribute to the life and work of this exceptional woman. In spite of their different ages and backgrounds, the two women came to value each other’s company and it was through the shepherd that the artist learned how to interpret the surrounding landscape. At the same time the paintings depict an ancient way of living that has been long in decline and which may be finally disappearing.

Expanding Horizons Giovanni Battista Lusieri and the Panoramic Landscape Aidan Weston-Lewis et al. 240 X 295MM | 224PP | JUNE 2012 180 COLOUR ILLUSTRATIONS 978 1 906270 46 9 | £ 24.95 HARDBACK

This is the first publication in English devoted to the work of Giovanni Battista Lusieri (1754–1821). His career took him from his native Rome to Naples, Sicily and finally to the eastern Mediterranean, where he spent twenty years as the resident artist of the 7th Earl of Elgin. Lusieri’s watercolours combine a broad, panoramic vision, an uncanny ability to capture brilliant Mediterranean light and a meticulous attention to detail. He was widely acclaimed as one of the most accomplished landscape artists of his day, and his works were eagerly sought by British Grand Tourists, but after his death he was soon forgotten, and only recently have his exceptional gifts begun to be recognised once again.

Masterpieces from Mount Stuart Christian Tico Seifert 245 X 165MM | 64PP | MAY 2012 33 COLOUR ILLUSTRATIONS 978 1 906270 50 6 | £ 9.95 HARDBACK

This beautifully illustrated book presents old master paintings from the famous Bute Collection at Mount Stuart. Featuring nineteen Dutch, Flemish, Early Netherlandish, and French pictures it includes celebrated landscapes by Aelbert Cuyp and Jacob van Ruisdael, scenes from everyday life by Pieter de Hooch, Gabriel Metsu, and David Teniers as well as portraits by Joos van Cleve, Jacob Jordaens, and Antoine Le Nain. It was regarded as the most important collection of Dutch and Flemish pictures formed in Britain before the French Revolution. The collection is kept at Mount Stuart on the Isle of Bute, the family’s grand house built by Sir Robert Rowand Anderson, who was also the architect of the Scottish National Portrait Gallery.

The Scottish National Portrait Gallery is about the people of Scotland–past and present, famous or forgotten. The portraits are windows into their lives and the displays throughout the building help explain how the men and women of earlier times made Scotland the country it is today. This book introduces you to some of our country’s greatest individuals and steers you through Scotland’s quite complicated but always fascinating history.

A History of the Scottish National Portrait Gallery Duncan Thomson 250 X 195MM | 176PP | 2011 142 ILLUSTRATIONS 978 1 906270 48 3 | £ 19.95 HARDBACK

The Scottish National Portrait Gallery, founded in 1882, opened the doors of its ornate neo-Gothic palace in 1889. Funded by the philanthropist John Ritchie Findlay and designed by the great Victorian architect, Sir Robert Rowand Anderson, it displays one of the richest national por­trait collections anywhere in the world. This book traces the history of the earliest ideas for such a gallery, how the building itself came into being and how it was embellished to reflect national aspirations. The book discusses how the building has been adapted to cope with modern needs,

how notions of display have changed and how collecting policies developed over more than a century to shape the collection into what it is today.

Rough Cut Nation Richie Cumming 210 X 210MM | 40PP | 2011 50 COLOUR ILLUSTRATIONS 978 1 906270 47 6 | £9.99 PAPER

During the summer of 2009, Rough Cut Nation filled the hallowed halls of the Scottish National Portrait Gallery as it closed for redevelopment. A team of young artists and musicians, inspired by the historic murals of William Hole, which are integral to the building, seized their opportunity to reconfigure Scottish identity in a riotous, multi-layered installation. This book, which records the event and marks the Portrait Gallery’s re-opening, is the result of a unique partnership between Edinburgh College of Art and the National Galleries of Scotland.

1 903278 65 1 | £12.95 PAPER

Phoebe Anna Traquair was a unique figure in British culture. The first significant professional woman artist in modern Scotland, she was also a key figure in the Arts and Crafts movement. A free spirit, Traquair celebrated life through image, colour and texture, taking her inspiration from Renaissance painting, the art and poetry of Blake and the music of Wagner. She produced a huge body of work, from vast, breathtaking mural decorations and sensual embroideries to exquisite illuminated manuscripts and enamels. Using her own words and those of friends and contemporaries, this beautifully illustrated book sheds new light on the ambitions of late Victorian and Edwardian culture.

F.C.B. Cadell Alice Strang 265 X 245MM | 96PP | 2011 88 COLOUR ILLUSTRATIONS 978 1 906270 40 7 | £14.95 PAPER

‘His wit was constant and brilliant–it was but an indication of many-sided accomplishment which found expression in colour, in verse and life itself.’ So wrote the artist Stanley Cursiter about Francis Campbell Boileau Cadell. Cadell was one of the artists popularly known as the Scottish Colourists. Influenced by direct contact with the European avantgarde movements taking place at the turn of the century and the work of Matisse and the Fauves, Cadell’s paintings are confident and rich with colour he is celebrated for his stylish portraits and his vibrantly coloured, daringly simple still lifes of the 1920s. He also captured the beauty of the landscape, especially in the evocative works portraying his beloved Iona. This book offers a fascinating insight to an artist who

many consider to be the most important of the Scottish Colourists.

Tony Cragg Patrick Elliott 300 X 245MM | 120PP | 2011 90 COLOUR ILLUSTRATIONS 978 1 906270 43 8 | £ 20 HARDBACK

Born in Liverpool in 1949, Tony Cragg is one of the world’s most celebrated and innovative sculptors. In the early 1980s he became recognised as the leader of the so-called New British Sculptors, who took conceptual and minimalist art in a new figurative direction. Known for his extraordinary use of materials, including plastic, plaster, wood, glass, ceramics and found objects, in the past twenty years he has worked increasingly in bronze, often on a monumental scale. This book offers an overview of his career, but focuses in particular on his work in bronze, notably the Early Forms and Rational Beings series.

Elizabeth Blackadder

94 COLOUR ILLUSTRATIONS 978 1 906270 39 1 | £9.95 PAPER

As Elizabeth Blackadder approached her eightieth birthday, the Scottish artist’s passion for making art was undiminished. Although widely honoured, there is a sense that Blackadder’s art has not gained the attention it deserves, both in national and international terms. Perhaps this is because the power of her paintings is sometimes masked by the charm of her subject matter and the deceptive ease of her technique, or because we are more attuned to the loud and brash at the expense of quieter mastery. This beautifully illustrated book, with essays by Philip Long and John Leighton, is both a celebration and invitation to look again at the work of one of our greatest living painters.

295 X 245MM | 496PP | 2011 450 COLOUR ILLUSTRATIONS 978 1 906270 35 3 | SPECIAL PRICE £35 HARDBACK

The collection of English drawings and watercolours in the Scottish National Gallery is rich, diverse and in many respects little known. It includes over 2,000 works by more than 250 artists, which range from the Stuart court in the early seventeenth century to the late Victorian period–from Isaac Oliver to Lord Leighton. The Romantic or ‘golden age’ of watercolour painting lies at the heart of the collection and is illustrated by outstanding examples of the art of John Robert Cozens, William Blake, John Sell Cotman, Thomas Girtin and J.M.W. Turner.
