Art print featuring artwork Rain on Princes Street by Stanley Cursiter, 1913

Inspired by early Futurist paintings, Cursiter captured the modern energy of Edinburgh's busy shopping street and the half-glimpsed faces partially obscured by the geometric shapes of large umbrellas.

Cursiter was one of the first students of the newly-opened Edinburgh College of Art and played an important role in introducing Post-Impressionism and Futurism to Scotland. He was appointed Director of the National Galleries of Scotland in 1930 and King's Limner for Scotland in 1948. Cursiter initiated the campaign to create a Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.
