About this title


This dictionary provides coverage of the work of Scottish artists from 1600 to the 1990s. The author, Dr. Peter McEwan, who is both a scholar and dealer, has spent nearly two decades in researching for this work. Much of his efforts have been directed towards original research with the result that of more than 5500 artists recorded, many are hitherto unknown while of the known artists, much additional information is included. The development of Scottish painting, and indeed art, has had more to do with continental Europe than with England. In the 17th century there was a constant migration of Scottish artists to Italy, especially to the Roman Academy of St Luke. In the 18th century, in the midst of the Scottish Enlightenment, the art of Scotland, in particular its portraiture, achieved heights at least equal to its southern neighbour. In the 19th century and beyond there was a close affinity with the Low Countries while at the dawn of impressionism and with the explosion of interest in colour, Scottish painting occupied a leading place. The Glasgow School and the Scottish Colourists were two of the most important artistic movements to their time in Europe. The Dictionary is, therefore, an important source of reference about art of the 20th century. The Dictionary follows a similar form to other Antique Collectors' Club standard reference works. Essential biographic facts, a short entry of the artist's work, its place in artistic tradition. The current location of key works is included and a short bibliography listing the principal references. In order to provide a balanced record, reference to the life and works of Scotland's most important architects, designers and illustrators have also been included.
