Blazing with Crimson | Tartan Portraits
- 1st December 2011 − 31st December 2013
Highland dress and tartan fabric are universally recognised signs of Scotland and Scottish identity. This display explores what these distinctive garments and this highly recognisable textile meant to six different people who were painted between 1680 and 1780.
The Scottish National Portrait Gallery would like to thank Sabhal Mòr Ostaig The National Centre for Gaelic Language and Culture for their assistance with this display.
