Alice Strang, Senior Curator at the National Galleries of Scotland, considers modern Scottish art in A New Era and shows there was more to the nation’s output between 1900 and 1950 than the Colourists.

Exploring links to Expressionism, Cubism and Surrealism, she puts Scottish artists such as William Gear, J D Fergusson and Wilhelmina Barns-Graham in their rightful place on the historical map.

Chaired by Jane Fowler. 

Part of Edinburgh International Book Festival's Scottish Ideas series of events
