Signatures Of Scottish Art: 140 Years of the Fine Art Society
Exhibited during the year that The Fine Art Society celebrated its 140th anniversary, the occasion was marked in our Edinburgh gallery with the exhibition Signatures of Scottish Art. The show included 14 important Scottish paintings from the 17th century to the early 1900s. Works by: Henry Ferguson, David Allan, Allan Ramsay, Sir Henry Raeburn, Waller Hugh Paton, William McTaggart, Edward Arthur Walton, John Quinton Pringle, John Duncan, FCB Cadell and James McIntosh Patrick.
The Fine Art Society has had a long-standing relationship with Scotland, having first exhibited here in 1969. A dedicated gallery space in Edinburgh was established from 1972-1992, before the opening of a new space in the heart of the Georgian New Town in 204. The Fine Art Society in Edinburgh has proved a natural fit with London, enhancing and enlarging the international market for Scottish paintings and sculpture.
