The Remaking Of Scotland Postcard Pack
Pack of 6 postcards from the exhibition The Remaking of Scotland.
Between 1760 and 1860, Scotland’s place in the world was dramatically remade. From a longstanding position at the periphery, Scotland rapidly attained a central role in European cultural life and in Britain’s industrial and imperial expansion. This exhibition explores the lives and careers of the Scots behind this period of dramatic change. It documents the material and artistic benefits of their achievements, while also confronting the darker shadows they cast. It will show how MacPherson, Burns and Scott reinvented Scotland as a land of myth and romance; but also consider how their work could substitute comforting fictions for difficult realities.
