Major developments at Scottish National Gallery Gareth Hoskins Architects has been appointed to oversee a major transformational project at the Scottish National Gallery over the next 4 years. Galleries devoted to the national collection of historic Scottish art will be radically overhauled and significantly expanded whilst greatly improving visitor circulation and facilities at the Scottish National Gallery. The development aims to almost double the display space for Scottish art within the Scottish National Gallery designed by William Henry Playfair and which opened in 1859. Gareth Hoskins Architects is one of Scotland’s leading architectural practices. With studios in Glasgow and Berlin the practice is involved in a wide range of projects across Scotland and internationally. The practice has established a particular reputation for their design of arts and cultural schemes and the Scottish National Gallery project follows on from recent developments such as the Mareel Concert Hall in Shetland and the RIAS Doolan Award winning redevelopment of the National Museum of Scotland.

GENERATION is a ground-breaking three-venue exhibition, at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, the Scottish National Gallery and the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, showcases some of the most significant works to be made in Scotland over the last 25 years. Featuring the work of 31 artists, the exhibition includes existing and new works, alongside the restaging of several significant exhibitions of the period. It celebrates the diversity, richness and power of the work that artists have made during the period, and which continues to be produced today.

The Art of Golf – The Story of Scotland’s National Sport Scottish National Gallery 12 July-26 October 2014 £8 / £6

The Art of Golf is staged to coincide with the match between Europe and the United States for the Ryder Cup team trophy which will be played at Gleneagles, Perthshire in September. This will be only the second time this famous sporting contest has ever been held in Scotland. The exhibition provides a visual history of Scotland’s national sport, bringing together works of art, rare items of golfing memorabilia and museum pieces of unique significance within the game’s history. Artists featured include Hendrick Avercamp, Rembrandt, Sir Henry Raeburn and Sir John Lavery. Sir John Lavery, Golfing at North Berwick c.1920 Courtesy Mary Ellen and John Imlay

The exhibition begins with Dutch 17th-century paintings of ‘colf’ (an ancestor of modern-day golf) being played on the frozen waterways of the Netherlands. It goes on to chart the origins of modern golf in Scotland with paintings of important early links courses in Leith, Bruntsfield and Musselburgh through to contemporary aerial artworks offering new perspectives on great Scottish golf courses such as the Old Course in St Andrews, Gleneagles and Carnoustie. So, whether you’re a golf enthusiast or an avid art fan, The Art of Golf shows how this great game has encouraged some great art over the centuries. Supported by Mary Ellen and John Imlay

Titian and the Golden Age of Venetian Art Scottish National Gallery Until 14 September 2014 Admission free

This exhibition celebrates the recent acquisition, jointly with the National Gallery in London, of two outstanding mythological paintings by Titian (about 1485/90–1576). It draws on the Gallery’s exceptionally rich collection of 16th century Venetian paintings, drawings and prints to showcase and contextualise Titian’s two Diana canvases. Almost all of the major names in Venetian art of the period are represented. The National Gallery in London has generously lent another highly important painting by Titian, The Death of Actaeon. Technical information, comparative images and other interpretative material provide deeper insights into the art of this exceptionally fertile creative period in Venice’s history. Titian, Diana and Callisto (detail) 1556-59 © National Galleries of Scotland

The purchase of Diana and Actaeon, was concluded in 2009, and that of its pair, Diana and Callisto, in 2012. The exhibition provides the National Galleries of Scotland with an opportunity to thank the funding bodies and individuals who contributed so generously to the acquisition of these hugely important and influential pictures. #TitianArt ‘Priceless.

First Sight: Recent Acquisitions of Prints and Drawings Scottish National Gallery 14 June – 12 October 2014 Admission free

First Sight showcases some of the superb recent additions to the Scottish National Gallery’s world-class collection of drawings, watercolours and prints. A wide-ranging selection of around 30 works on paper acquired over the last five years, ranging from 17th-century Old Master prints to the work of Manet and Cézanne in the late 19th-century, this display highlights the extraordinary richness and diversity of the collection. As well as high-profile recent acquisitions such as JMW Turner’s spectacular watercolour, Rome from Monte Mario, there are works by artists new to the collection, including magnificent Scottish landscapes by Francis Nicholson and Thomas Miles Richardson the Younger. Other highlights include etchings by Rembrandt, Goya and JeanFrançois Millet, a powerful pencil drawing showing Robert the Bruce by Joseph Noel Paton, a delicate drawing in red chalk by Watteau and a diminutive study made by Benjamin West in preparation for his vast oil painting in the Gallery’s collection, Alexander III Saved from the Stag. #FirstSightArt For related events, see pages 28-38. 14


Titian’s masterworks Diana and Callisto and Diana and Actaeon have shaped and reflected the course of art, over the past 450 years. Now you can immerse yourself in these spectacular mythological paintings with our new free app Titian & Diana. Enjoy the paintings up close like never before and listen to some of the extraordinary stories which have taken place around them and because of them.

American Impressionism: A New Vision Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art (Modern Two) 19 July-19 October 2014 £8 / £6

Frank Weston Benson, Eleanor, 1901, Gift of the Estate of Mrs. Gustav Radeke. Museum of Art, Rhode Island School of Design, Providence

This, the first ever exhibition on this subject in this country, explores the response of American artists to French Impressionism. It features major international artists such as James McNeill Whistler, John Singer Sargent and Mary Cassatt, and artists better known to American audiences, such as Theodore Robinson, Childe Hassam, William Merritt Chase and John Twachtman. A selection of pictures by the French Impressionists Claude Monet, Berthe Morisot, and Edgar Degas provides a context for the American works. The show comprises two sections – Americans working abroad (1880-1890) and Americans working at home (1890-1900). It begins by exploring Cassatt and Sargent who cultivated friendships with French Impressionists and participated in the evolution of the new visual aesthetic. In America, artists turned to impressionism slightly later, between 1890 and 1900. Their subjects included New York parks, East Coast beaches, New England villages and, the image of the American woman. #AmerImp Part of our Gallery Card offer. See page 3 for more details.

Take a final opportunity to see this retrospective of the work of JD Fergusson (1874-1961). Fergusson was born in Leith, and was essentially self-taught. He moved to Paris in 1907 where, more than any of his Scottish contemporaries, he assimilated the latest developments in French art into his work. More than 100 paintings, sculptures, works on paper and items of archival material, lent from public and private collections throughout the UK, are on display. A tour of selected works is be on show at Pallant House Gallery, Chichester, 5 July- 19 October 2014 (www.pallant.org.uk) The companion exhibition, JD Fergusson: Picture of a Celt, is at The Fergusson Gallery in Perth until 15 June 2014 (www.pkc.gov.uk).

John Ruskin: Artist and Observer Scottish National Portrait Gallery 4 July-28 September 2014 £8 / £6 John Ruskin, Study of a Kingfisher, with dominant Reference to Colour, probably October 1871 © Ashmolean Museum, University of Oxford

John Ruskin (1819-1900) is renowned as the greatest British art critic of the 19th century and the champion of Turner, but his role as an artist remains relatively little known. He was also an outstanding draughtsman and watercolour painter, who especially took inspiration from the natural world and architectural subjects. This exhibition will illustrate, with the finest examples, the range and quality of his drawn and painted work. Gothic palaces in Venice, wild and spectacular Scottish and Alpine landscapes, and minutely defined and brilliantly coloured birds and plants will all be highlights of the show. The loans will chiefly come from the key UK and US collections (both public and private), and the exhibition is a prestigious collaboration with the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa. It is especially fitting that John Ruskin: Artist and Observer should be showcased in Edinburgh, as Ruskin came from a Scottish family, visited Scotland many times, and was a passionate advocate for the beauty of its landscapes and literary heritage. #RuskinArt Part of our gallery card offer.

This exhibition is at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery to mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War. Thought provoking and poignant, and encompassing famous Scots as well as less well-known figures. Largely drawn from works in the National Galleries of Scotland’s collection, the exhibition includes a rich variety of portraits and related works in various media. Among those featured are Commander-in-Chief Field Marshal Sir Douglas Haig, James Keir Hardie who opposed British involvement in the war, Dr Elsie Ingles who took a team of Scottish nurses to Serbia, artists Sir James Gunn and Sir William Gillies who were wounded in action, and James Maxton who organized a ship-workers’ strike during the war, JS Haldane who invented the gas mask. Also included is a portrait of Sir Harry Lauder who entertained troops at the Front and who wrote the morale-boosting anthem ‘Keep Right on to the End of the Road’, and whose only son was killed in France on Boxing Day, 1916. #RtGreatWar Remembering the Great War is part of the First World War Centenary Partnership.

Alexander Stoddart - Making History Scottish National Portrait Gallery Until 29 March 2015 Admission free

The exhibition explores the recent work by Alexander Stoddart (Sculptor In Ordinary to The Queen of Scotland) commissioned by the Scottish National Portrait Gallery: the creation of a monumental figure representing History for the exterior of the Gallery. A figure of History, by William Birnie Rhind, adorned the apex of the main entrance of the Gallery from 1893 but was weathered beyond repair. Stoddart’s new figure will be installed on the exterior of the Gallery in the autumn and his process and preparatory works will be the main focus of this exhibition. For related events, see pages 28-38.

Brain of the Artist by Angela Palmer Scottish National Portrait Gallery Until 31 Aug 2014 Admission free

In this latest addition to the Gallery Collection artist Angela Palmer has developed a form of sculpture which involves mapping on multiple sheets of glass, either through engraved or drawn lines, features of the human body, this work, based on MRI scans taken of the artist’s brain at University College London, is a most unusual form of selfportraiture. It is an elegant, ethereal work which develops in a challenging way the concept of self-representation. The work displayed in the Great Hall of the Portrait Gallery. For related events, see pages 28-38.
