Scotland will be embracing Spanish culture until 11 October at The National Gallery of Scotland’s exciting new exhibition, The Discovery of Spain, British Artists and Collectors: Goya to Picasso.
This is a fantastic opportunity to explore the fascination for Spanish art and culture in 19th- and early 20th-century Britain and examine the taste of Hispanophile collectors and artists. Outstanding examples of Spanish art, including works by Velázquez, El Greco, Murillo and Picasso, will form a dramatic centerpiece for the exhibition.
Paintings by major British artists who were captivated by the experience of travelling through Spain will also feature in the show; these include important paintings by Sir David Wilkie, David Roberts and Arthur Melville.
The exhibition is exclusive to the Edinburgh gallery and will be your only chance to see this collection of over 130 paintings, watercolours, drawings, prints and photographs, with important loans from the Royal Collection, the National Gallery, London, Tate, and other distinguished public and private collections across the UK.
