A Sense of Place: Twentieth Century Scottish Painting

How have Scottish artists represented the world around them? Drawn from Dundee’s nationally significant fine art collection, this display focuses primarily on landscape painting. The exhibition focuses on landscapes by Scottish artists, starting with the pioneering work of the Glasgow Boys. Inspired by French practice, ‘The Boys’ moved out of the studio to paint out-of-doors, en plein air. With this new spirit of naturalism, artists were able to capture the effects of light and the weather, breathing new life into Scottish art.
