The Line of Tradition: Watercolours, Drawings and Prints by Scottish Artists 1700-1990

£5.99

Product description

"Many of the finest works on paper by Scottish artists are to be found in the collection of the National Galleries of Scotland. Rarely exhibited for reasons of conservation, some four hundred of the best watercolours, prints and drawings were selected for the exhibition The Line of Tradition. This book, which accompanies the exhibition, discusses many of these works in detail and illustrates more than sixty in colour: from the intimate chalk drawings of Allan Ramsay to the powerfully evocative Highland landscapes of artists such as Horatio McCulloch and Alexander Nasmyth. The text offers a fascinating and readable account of the most important features and developments in Scottish graphic art over the last three hundred years. Following on from surveys of paintings and sculpture, The Line of Tradition is the third in a series of major exhibitions devoted to Scottish art which have been staged in recent years by the National Galleries of Scotland."

Book in very good condition.
