Northern Lights: Aberndee Art Gallery at the Fleming Collection
08 Sep 2015 – 27 Jan 2016
London, United Kingdom
The Fleming Collection shows an alternating programme of temporary exhibitions drawn from both private and national collections, and selected works from the permanent collection.
Widely regarded as the finest collection of Scottish art in private hands, the Fleming Collection is the only dedicated gallery granting public access to Scottish art all year round. The collection comprises over 750 oils and watercolours from 1770 to the present day including works by Raeburn, Ramsay, Wilkie and two iconic paintings of the Highland Clearances: The Last of the Clan by Thomas Faed and Lochaber No More by John Watson Nicol. Particularly noted for its major paintings by the Scottish Colourists, the collection also holds paintings by the Glasgow Boys as well as seminal works by Anne Redpath and her contemporaries.
The Fleming-Wyfold Foundation (registered charity no.1080197) and the Fleming Collection are dedicated to furthering understanding in Scottish art through exhibitions, education and publishing. The foundation relies on the generosity of private individuals, companies and trusts and receives no public funding.
