Taking Hugh MacDiarmid's decrial 'Scotland small? Our multiform, our infinite Scotland small?' as an initial cue, this exhibition highlighted the emotive power of the Scottish landscape and showed the contrasting approaches taken by Royal Scottish Academicians toward the subject. It considered the web of implied narratives, political appropriations and cultural signifiers built into depictions of the environment in Scottish art as a result of the unerring pull of the landscape. Over 40 Royal Scottish Academicians took part in the exhibition, including Leon Morrocco, Eileen Lawrence, Will Maclean, Alan Robb and Michael Visocchi.

 

This fully-illustrated catalogue includes works by all the exhibiting artists and an essay by the curator, Flora La Thangue.
