Scottish Art, 1460 - 2000

Duncan Macmillan

Duncan Macmillan's sumptuous story of art in Scotland from the fifteenth century was the first comprehensive on the subject for 40 years when it was first published in 1990.  Rapturously received by the critics, it rapidly became regarded as the definitive book on the subject.  Updated in 2001 to take account of developments in the art world over the previous ten years, this edition, Scottish Art 1460-2000, emulated its predecessor's success.

'An ambitious study that connects Scottish painting to the Eurpean tradition over five centuries, while examining with intelligence, wit and imagination the Scottish-ness of Scottish art.  The way in which indigenous originality infiltrates tradition is the theme of this affectionate, committed survey. This book puts Scottish art into a proper perspective and must be seen as the definitive study’- Marina Vaizey, Sunday Times.

Professor Duncan Macmillan is reader in fine art and curator of the Talbot Rice Gallery at the University of Edinburgh.
