The Scottish Colourist: FCB Cadell
Talk | Scottish Gallery of Modern Art One (previously Gallery of Modern Art)
Tuesday 25 October 2011 - 18:00 until 20:00
This autumn the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art will launch the first in an annual series of exhibitions devoted to Scottish colourists.
The Scottish Colourist : FCB Cadell will be the first major retrospective of his work to be held in the public gallery in almost seventy years and will bring together almost 80 paintings, from public and private collections, many of which have rarely, if ever been exhibited before.
The exhibition will be complimented by a display of some of the objects depicted in Cadell's paintings, together with the archival material such as letters and photographs.
This exclusive private view for the Art Fund members will include drinks followed by a talk on the exhibition by its curator Alice Strang, who will reveal some of the stories behind the discoveries which the gallery has made in bringing the exhibition together.
