A HIGHLAND THING
18th to 20th century Scottish Art
by Rosalind Whyte
For many years Scottish artists found it necessary to travel south to make their names and careers in art, but with the growth of Edinburgh and Glasgow from the end of the 18th Century, an independent Scottish art scene became possible. Individuals such as Sir Henry Raeburn enjoyed success while remaining in their native Scotland. The lecture will look at parallels between Scottish and European art, as well as periods of divergence.
Rosalind holds a BA and MA from Goldsmith's College and an MA (distinction) from Birkbeck College. She is an experienced guide at Tate Britain, the Tate Modern, the Royal Academy, and the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich. Rosalind lectures at the Tate, to independent art societies and on cruises.
