J.D. Fergusson: La Vie Bohème - The Unseen Drawings
In February 2018, The Scottish Gallery presents an exclusive collection of newly acquired iconic drawings by J.D. Fergusson dating from 1909 to 1950. This group of previously unseen works are typically economical, direct and true to the moment. They are mostly working drawings, seldom preparatory for painting but rather the exercise of the artist’s instinct and overriding interest in form, character and the joy of life.
