Assistant curator Freya Spoor will discuss how Sir James Guthrie, a member of the Glasgow Boys, developed this large-scale composition over several months. Using sketches held in the National Galleries of Scotland collection, she will explore some of the challenges he faced when completing this work and how he attempted to resolve them.
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.
While construction work is ongoing at the Scottish National Gallery we have been busy delivering a full programme of activities, inviting people to discover and connect with historic Scottish art.
