Product Description
Painting In Scotland Book of Postcards
Edinburgh became known as “the Athens of the North” in the eighteenth century for its contributions to literature, social thought, and the arts. With the establishment of the Royal Scottish Academy in 1826, native artists no longer found it necessary to leave for London in search of a living, since they had the Academy’s support and the opportunity to exhibit their work at home. Scottish painting began to take on a distinct and distinguished identity.

Landscape and genre painting were particular strengths of the emerging Scottish school, and they have remained so, with artists from Sir David Wilkie to Edward Atkinson Hornel celebrating their country and its folkways. The portrait and still life have also flourished, as witness the work of Andrew Geddes, Samuel John Peploe, and Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

This book of thirty postcards presents paintings from the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries—a golden age in Scottish art.
