Tomorrow we wave goodbye to our exhibition Charles H Mackie: Colour and Light. As a send off join us for this lecture which examines the influences of French Art in the work of Charles H. Mackie.

Belinda Thomson is an independent scholar and Honorary Professor in art history at the University of Edinburgh. A specialist in the art of Paul Gauguin and his contemporaries, she instigated the project and chaired the committee behind the 2004 exhibition Patrick Geddes: the French Connection (Institut français d'Ecosse and Scottish National Portrait Gallery) in which the role of Charles Mackie was explored.
