Alison Watt @ Scottish National Portrait Gallery

25 July 2021 - 9 January 2022

Alison Watt is widely regarded as one of the leading painters working in the UK today. This significant body of new work consists of paintings made in response to the practice of the celebrated eighteenth-century portrait artist Allan Ramsay (1713-84) and are on show for the first time.

In A Portrait Without Likeness the artist explores her continuing fascination with Ramsay’s portraits of women, in particular, the intensely personal images of his first and second wives, Anne Bayne (died 1743) and Margaret Lindsay of Evelick (1726-82), which will be shown alongside Watt’s new work.
