Jenny Saville @ Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art

24 March 2018 - 16 September 2018

The third instalment of NOW features a major survey of works by renowned British artist Jenny Saville, spanning some 25 years of the artist’s career across five rooms.
It brings together 17 works from private and public collections across the globe, is a first in Scotland, and only her third in the UK. The selection spans 26 years, from iconic early paintings such as Propped (1992) and Trace (1993-4), to recent charcoal and pastel drawings, demonstrating how Saville’s approach to depicting the human body has shifted over the course of her career. Other highlights will include a series of large-scale head paintings, such as Rosetta II (2005-6), made while the artist was based in Italy, and the premier of a major new work, Aleppo (2017-18), which is at the Scottish National Gallery alongside historic works from the collection.
