For generations, Scotland has been the home and inspiration of a stunning array of visual artists. The City Art Centre’s collection reflects this wealth of creativity and talent...


The collection covers a wide range of subject-matter, depicted through a variety of styles and media. Traditional oil portraits of public figures hang alongside contemporary installation pieces. But who are the artists behind these artworks?
   
A - Z: An Alphabetical Tour of Scottish Art introduces some of the men and women whose work makes up this rich collection. Painters, sculptors, photographers and printmakers are all featured, representing the key movements that have shaped Scotland’s artistic identity. From William Allan to Aleksander Zyw, this exhibition cuts across time periods, themes and media to explore the breadth and diversity of Scottish art.

A - Z is the first exhibition to be staged in the City Art Centre’s newly refurbished lower ground floor gallery. This exciting space has now been redeveloped to create a dedicated area for showing the permanent Scottish Art Collection. In the coming years, visitors will be able to see more of this collection than ever before, through a changing programme of temporary displays.

The Scottish Art Collection, cared for by the City of Edinburgh Museums and Galleries, is a Recognised Collection of National Significance to Scotland. The refurbishment of the lower ground floor gallery has been undertaken with the support of Museums Galleries Scotland through the Recognition Capital Fund.
