This new exhibition will bring together significant works that explores the history of Scottish Art. A Window into Scottish Art will shine a spotlight on the character, inspiration, and talent of Scottish artists and provoke new ways of defining their achievements.

The exhibition is drawn from two collections that complement one another: The Ingram and Fleming Collections. The Ingram Collection is now recognised as one of this country’s most significant, and publicly accessible, collections of Modern British Art, and the Fleming Collection is considered the finest collection of Scottish art outside public institutions.

The works will include paintings, drawings, sculpture and collage by artists such as George Jamesone (1587-1644) known as ‘the Scottish Van Dyke’, through to the Glasgow Girls and Boys and the Scottish colourist (Peploe, Fergusson, Hunter and Cadell). 20th-century figures such as Eduardo Paolozzi and John Bellany will join contemporary artists such as Caroline Walker, Alison Watt, Barry McGlasham and Iman Tajik who will further explore the many facets of the Scots’ creative imagination.

James Knox, Director, the Fleming Collection, said: “This exhibition, which brings together two outstanding collections, offers not just a window into the splendour, grit and beauty of Scottish art; it also offers a window into the psyche of a far flung, northern nation with all the historic contradictions that brings.”

Jo Baring, Director of the Ingram Collection said “The Fleming and Ingram Collections have a shared mission to showcase the art in our collections to wide audiences, increasing both access to and knowledge of the periods and artists represented. This exhibition is a demonstration of our shared ethos, and we hope visitors to The Lightbox will enjoy the strength and variety of the works on display.”
