Join us for one of our regular digital streams on the City Art Centre Facebook page for a special described tour designed for those with visual impairments. We will describe 5 key works by Adam Bruce Thomson held in the City Art Centre’s own collection. In this tour we will pull out some specific details from the paintings in defined scale. Adam Bruce Thomson (1885-1976) was one of the most quietly impactful artists of his generation. Born in Edinburgh, he was among the earliest intake of students to train at Edinburgh College of Art, following its establishment in 1908. He went on to teach at the College for another forty years, supporting successive cohorts of young artists. In his own practice, Thomson worked across a range of media, mastering various printmaking techniques, drawing in pastels, and painting in oils and watercolours. His subject-matter was similarly diverse, spanning portraiture, still life, architecture and landscape themes.
