The Taste of JW Blyth

John Waldegrave Blyth (1873–1962) was a Kirkcaldy linen manufacturer with a passion for art collecting that began in his early thirties. A large part of the collection is now in the Kirkcaldy art Gallery, but a very significant portion was retained, and the exhibition which accompanied this publication represented the last works held by the family. It is more than fitting that this exhibition took place at The Scottish Gallery from where so much of the collection was bought and with whom Blyth enjoyed such a long and fruitful relationship.

Features a foreword by Michael Portillo and essays by Peter Arkell and Guy Peploe which look into the origins, themes and motivations for his collection.
