J.D. Fergusson | 150

30 April 2024

Managing Director Christina Jansen discusses works by J.D. Fergusson ahead of his 150th anniversary exhibition.

This year marks the 150th anniversary of the birth of one of Scotland’s greatest artists, John Duncan Fergusson. He was an exceptionally gifted man with an uncompromising vision of what it meant to be an artist: emotional truth was paramount. Free from the constraints of academic tradition or the conventions of bourgeois life, he was a man for whom his work was his manifesto and wide intellectual engagement was the basis for his art.
