The Jerwood Gallery launched its latest exhibition over the weekend featuring paintings by five artists from the Fleming Collection, which will be exhibited alongside complementary works from the Jerwood Collection.
A Scottish Selection: Paintings from the Fleming Collection showcases significant Modern British artists including: Craigie Aitchison, Anne Redpath, John Bellany, William George Gillies and Wilhelmina Barns-Graham.
James Knox, Director of the Fleming-Wyfold Foundation has said: “I’m delighted that the Jerwood/Fleming celebration of this group of Scottish artists, so expressive of the range of Scottish painting in the twentieth century, should coincide with my arrival as director of the Fleming Wyfold Foundation; as the show fulfils the core aim of the Fleming Foundation to promote Scottish art and creativity outside Scotland. These fine works from two such superb collections will open the eyes of many to the glories of Scottish art and will provoke questions about the universality of national schools as well as their distinctive characteristics.”
The exhibition runs until July 12th, Tuesday – Sunday 11am – 5pm.
