Modern Scottish Women @ Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art

7 November 2015 - 26 June 2016

This revelatory exhibition of work by Scottish women artists will concentrate on painters and sculptors. It covers the period from 1885, when Fra Newbery became Director of Glasgow School of Art, until 1965, the year of Anne Redpath’s death. The eighty years which lay between these events saw an unprecedented number of Scottish women train and practise as artists.
More than 90 works will be shown, drawn from the National Galleries of Scotland’s holdings and other public collections from throughout the UK, as well as from private collections. The exhibition will include familiar masterpieces alongside important works by significant artists which are rarely seen and who are not widely known. Artists represented range from Bessie Mac Nicol, Phoebe Anna Traquair and Gertrude Alice Meredith Williams, to Margaret Macdonald Mackintosh, Dorothy Johnstone and Hazel Armuor, as well as Phyllis Mary Bone, Joan Eardley and Bet Low.
