  • > MODERN SCOTTISH PAINTINGS 1940-1985
23rd November - 23 December 2017


The Fine Art Society in Edinburgh presents Modern Scottish Paintings 1940-1985, a selling exhibition of works created by Scottish artists in a period that emphasised individualism and rebellion against perceived safety and mundanity in the art that preceded it. Central to the exhibition is the large scale Teddy Boys by Pat Douthwaite, painted two years into her career when first establishing her favoured medium of enamel paint on board. Barbara Balmer’s Theatre of Dreams portrays a beautifully stylised Tuscan landscape, and also included are two vibrant still lifes by Robert Macbryde.
