Scottish Painting
1837 To The Present
William R. Hardie

9" x 11" • 224 pages • full color illustrations throughout
ISBN 9781849340359 • hardback • $50.00

This classic book is now in its third edition with a new introduction and final chapter that brings the book up to date with the latest developments in Scottish painting (Richard Wright's win of the Turner Prize 2009). Illustrated throughout, the work is by acknowledged authority William Hardie. Scottish society has been reflected through the strong color and energetic brushwork of its artists. The book traces the beginnings of Scottish painting from the foundation of the Foulis Academy in 1753. William Dyce, Noel Paton and John Phillip established themselves in the south, followed by W Q Orchardson and John Pettie around 1860. European travel ensured Scottish painters were open to new techniques, and the explosion of the Glasgow Boys and then the Colourists onto the scene meant Scotland was respected for its innovation and imagination. Charles Rennie Mackintosh is today internationally recognised for his work, and the painting of John Byrne, Stanley Curister, and Peter Howson bring the content of the book up to the present day.
