Spearheaded by the utopian thinker and sociologist Patrick Geddes, the Celtic Revival coincided with a period of cultural renaissance in Scotland.


This lecture will focus on artists such as E.A. Hornel, George Henry and John Duncan, who drew their inspiration from Celtic myths and legends, as well as from recent archaeological discoveries and the stylised forms of Insular manuscripts such as the Book of Kells.

Dr Frances Fowle is Reader in History of Art at the University of Edinburgh and Senior Curator at the Scottish National Gallery. She is a specialist in nineteenth-century art and the author of Van Gogh's Twin: the Scottish Art Dealer Alexander Reid: 1854-1928 (2010) and, with Strang and Cumming, S.J. Peploe (2012).
