Scottish National Gallery keeps with a century-old tradition of showing Turner watercolours

Scottish National Gallery keeps with a century-old tradition of showing Turner watercolours | Culture Scotland | Scoop.it

In keeping with a century-old tradition, New Year’s Day at the Scottish National Gallery will be marked by the opening of the annual exhibition of watercolours by J M W Turner (1775–1851). In his 1900 bequest to the gallery, Henry Vaughan, a London art collector who amassed an outstanding group of watercolours by the British painter, stipulated that the Turner watercolours must not be subjected to permanent display, since continual exposure to light would result in their fading.

Masterpiece Found In Spare Room In Scotland

Masterpiece Found In Spare Room In Scotland | Culture Scotland | Scoop.it
Sometimes you just don't like a painting, no matter how "great" it is. Whatever the reason, it just isn't doing anything for you. That's how one Scottish woman felt in the early 1960s, when her husband came home with a painting of roses.

John Bellany, an artist who spoke to the people

John Bellany, an artist who spoke to the people | Culture Scotland | Scoop.it

“To whom does the meaning of the art of the past properly belong? To those who can apply it to their own lives, or to a cultural hierarchy of relic specialists?”  JOHN BERGER


The art of John Bellany strikes a deep personal chord with those view his bold canvases and strange ominous drawings because it has depth without pretension, and needs no specialist knowledge to appreciate what it attempts to communicate.  Bellany’s art, like all great art, is personal; something you feel rather than intellectualise over.

A tale of sound and fury

A tale of sound and fury | Culture Scotland | Scoop.it

 A few days ago, I walked out of the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art so angry I could hardly speak – vibrating, nostrils flaring, teeth locked, brows knitted – angry enough to step out in front of, and face down, a speeding car on the pedestrian crossing outside. I left with a desire to never ever return to the gallery. I left hating art.
