Modern Masters X
05 Feb 2020 - 29 Feb 2020
Welcome to the tenth edition of our Modern Masters series.
We are delighted to include a selection of paintings and drawings from the estate of Alexander Goudie (1933–2004) providing a taste of his spectacular artistic career. Our Modern Masters X catalogue will feature a succinct essay by the artist, art historian and broadcaster Lachlan Goudie, providing a fascinating insight into the work of his father. Alexander Goudie will also be the subject of a major retrospective at The Scottish Gallery in 2021.
Modern Masters X also brings together a group of paintings by Victoria Crowe from her first visits to Italy. Venice, in particular, became vital to her practice in the late 1990s, and our collection of works from this period exemplify the excitement the artist felt immersed in the ancient city.
Other recent acquisitions give insight into the spirit of place evoked by Edinburgh School painters Robert Henderson Blyth, Adam Bruce Thomson and Willie Wilson. We also have fine early works by Dame Elizabeth Blackadder and Alberto Morrocco, alongside a fabulous late Poppies painting by Sir Robin Philipson.
We are also pleased to present a selection of post-war prints including work by William Scott, Elizabeth Blackadder and a Harley Brothers collaboration with Edward Gage. An accompanying essay by Tommy Zyw, titled 'Collecting 'Post-War Prints', will be available to read in our upcoming catalogue.
