This summer the Scottish National Portrait Gallery will present the first exhibition in over 40 years to be devoted to the life and art of King James VI and I. Featuring a wealth of objects from the National Galleries of Scotland collection and high profile loans, the exhibition will shed light on the cultural riches that were produced during James' reign and explore the people who commissioned and created them.
In this talk curator Kate Anderson will explore some of the key art works and themes in the exhibition and demonstrate the important role that art, performance, dress and jewellery played at the Jacobean courts.
We are currently working on improving our galleries. During this time some rooms will be closed and some facilities will be temporarily removed. There will be limited disabled access to some areas.
The Scottish National Gallery can be found just off Princes Street in the city centre.
In addition to the transport options below there are bike racks at each site and Just Eat Cycle Hire stations nearby.
