Showcasing 50 artworks from the City Art Centre’s collection that have rarely – and in some cases never - been seen before by the public, the exhibition will shine a spotlight on Edinburgh’s lesser-known treasures.


Free to visit, Hidden Gems will include artworks by famous names such as Lucien Pissarro, Man Ray, Joshua Reynolds and F.C.B Cadell, as well as lesser-known figures such as Bessie MacNicol, John Sheriff and Cecile Walton. The display will also bring several new acquisitions to public view for the first time, including significant works by Scottish artists Morris Grassie, Anthony Hatwell and Nicol Laidlaw.

Spanning over 200 years from the 18th century to the present day, this rich and eclectic selection of historic and modern art covers a range of media, from oil paintings and sculptures, to tapestries and artists’ books.
