For the first time in over a decade five floors of the City Art Centre will be devoted to a display from the City's art collection. Spanning over 400 years of work, a great many of Scotland's leading artists will feature in this multi-disciplinary exhibition. The scale of the display presents a unique opportunity to show some recent acquisitions or little-known works amongst our well-loved favourites, and offers a rare chance to see an overview of Scottish art.

On display will be key works by Ramsay, Raeburn, Nasmyth, McTaggart, the Glasgow Boys, the Colourists, Eardley, Gillies and the Edinburgh School, postwar artists including Blackadder and Bellany, and contemporaries including Callum Innes and Toby Paterson. A great opportunity to revisit old favourites and discover hidden treasures.
