Scottish Art


Preconceived ideas of Scottish Art can include lovely landscapes, tartan and stags. Scottish artists have been exhibiting on the international stage for centuries and our collection shows the breadth of their talent. As well as celebrating their creativity, our displays also demonstrate the impact Scottish artists have had on artistic styles and continue to have on contemporary visual art.
