SIGNATURES OF SCOTTISH ART: 140 YEARS OF THE FINE ART SOCIETY

10 June - 9 July 2016
Overview

This, the year that The Fine Art Society celebrates its 140th anniversary, marks the occasion with the exhibition Signatures of Scottish Art. The show includes 14 important Scottish paintings from the 17th century to the early 1900s. Works by: Henry Ferguson, David Allan, Allan Ramsay, Sir Henry Raeburn, Waller Hugh Paton, William McTaggart, Edward Arthur Walton, John Quinton Pringle, John Duncan, FCB Cadell and James McIntosh Patrick.

The Fine Art Society has had a long-standing relationship with Scotland, having first exhibited here in 1969. A dedicated gallery space in Edinburgh was established from 1973-1992, before the partnership between London and Edinburgh was formally re-established in 2004, when it joined forces with us here on Dundas Street, in the heart of the Georgian New Town. The Fine Art Society in Edinburghhas proved a natural fit with London, enhancing and enlarging the international market for Scottish paintings and sculpture.
