The Campbell Sisters Dancing a Waltz

Lorenzo Bartolini, V&A and Scottish National Gallery


Bartolini’s revolutionary and distinctive style can be seen in this sculpture; it is full of fluidity, charm and captures the beauty of nature.

Photographs of South Uist

Paul Strand, V&A and Scottish National Portrait Gallery


Strand’s search for an ideal community that he could capture on camera led him to South Uist. The nine photographs are the first of his Scottish works going into a Scottish public collection.


Depicting Morning, Noon, Evening and Night, the beautiful panels were painted by Corot to decorate the Fontainebleau studios of his fellow-artist Alexandre-Gabriel Decamps.

Two Forms (Orkney)

Dame Barbara Hepworth, Pier Arts Centre


Pier Arts Centre was set up to house the collection of Margaret Gardiner, who was a friend of Barbara Hepworth. This highly symbolic sculpture has been taken by the gallery to its natural home.

Christ on the Cross

El Greco, Auckland Castle


El Greco broke with tradition by placing two of his contemporaries at the foot of the cross instead of the Virgin and Saint John.
