James Holloway CBE

Last week James Holloway, former Director of the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, popped into The Gallery to sign several copies of his latest hard back, limited edition book Recollection | Scottish Art from Julius Caesar to Osama bin Laden which is an astonishing account of how his collection of Scottish paintings came into existence. His interest in history of art began with visits to the London galleries with his father. The National Gallery was always his favourite.

Recollection is a beautifully written book designed by Robert Dalrymple - signed copies are now available at The Gallery for £19.95 + P&P – please buy your copy here.

To find out more about James Holloway’s Recollection please watch this beautiful short film made by the Edinburgh Decorative and Fine Arts Society below:
