We are delighted to offer Friends a preview of our new exhibition opening at Modern One. New Arrivals: from Salvador Dalí to Jenny Saville presents a stunning showcase of our new acquisitions of modern and contemporary art. Comprising nearly 100 works, ranging in date from the early 1900s to the present day, the exhibition fills the whole ground floor of the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art (Modern One).

Thanks to our benefactors, we have acquired an extraordinary range of world-class artworks, by artists ranging from Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall, Leonora Carrington, Gwen John and Salvador Dalí, to Elisabeth Frink, Bridget Riley, Damien Hirst and Jenny Saville. Many of the works are going on show for the first time.
