This major exhibition will reveal the remarkable yet relatively unknown response of Scottish artists to the development of modern art in the first half of the 20th Century.


More than 100 paintings, sculptures and works on paper by over 50 artists will be on display from 2 December until 10 June next year, drawn from private and public collections from throughout the UK.

A New Era: Scottish Modern Art 1900-1950 will examine the most progressive work made by Scottish artists as they absorbed and responded to the great movements of European modern art, including Fauvism, Cubism, Surrealism and Abstraction.

The exhibition will chart Scottish modernism from its beginnings in the first decade of the century, when JD Fergusson (1874-1961) and SJ Peploe (1871-1935) experienced at first-hand the radical new work produced in Paris by artists such as Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) and Henri Matisse (1869-1954), to the turn of the Fifties, when emerging Scottish artists like Alan Davie (1920-2014), William Gear (1915-1997), Stephen Gilbert (1910-2007) and Eduardo Paolozzi (1924-2005) were at the forefront of European contemporary art.
