Scottish Art

Murdo Macdonald

What makes Scottish art Scottish?

Scottish art emerges in depictions of Scotland's dramatic landscape, its wars and conflicts, hardships, the heroes of Scottish history, the great figures of literature and philosophy, and its connection with France, from medieval times to the present.

These factors form the character of Scottish art which is rich in distinctive personalities and individual genius from Henry Raeburn and Allan Ramsay (the two great portraitists of the Scottish enlightenment) to pioneering pop artist Eduardo Paolozzi, to poet, sculptor and landscapist Ian Hamilton Finlay, painter Joan  Eardley and comtemporary artists such as Christine Borland and Calum Innes.
