A major retrospective of the Scottish artist Charles Hodge Mackie (1862-1920), featuring over fifty artworks from public and private collections.
The Scottish painter and printmaker Charles Hodge Mackie (1862-1920) was one of the most versatile artists of his generation. Based in Edinburgh, he embraced an international outlook, drawing inspiration from French Symbolism, the Celtic Revival movement and the landscapes of his European travels. His experimentation with different media was similarly wide-ranging, covering oil paintings, watercolours, murals, woodblock prints, book illustration and sculpture.
This major retrospective, timed to coincide with the centenary of Mackie’s death, showcases the breadth of his creative vision and talents. Charting the story of his career, it traces his development from the rural Scottish landscapes of his youth to his spectacular late Venetian scenes. The exhibition brings together over fifty artworks from public and private collections, including loans from the National Galleries of Scotland, the Royal Scottish Academy of Art and Architecture, and Perth Museum & Art Gallery.
