Ages of Wonder Royal Scottish AcademyAdd to Lightbox Download
The National Galleries of Scotland (NGS) and the Royal Scottish Academy (RSA) have collaborated to organise a major new exhibition, which opens in Edinburgh on 4 November 2017 and runs to 7 January 2018. "Ages of Wonder: Scotland’s Art 1540 to Now" will be the largest exhibition of the RSA’s hugely significant collection ever mounted and the first to occupy the entire RSA building.
The artworks on show will cover a period of nearly five centuries, from 1540 until the present day, from the The Adoration of the Kings by Jacopo Bassano (c.1510–1592) right through to Callum Innes’s Exposed Painting Lamp Black, submitted as the artist’s Diploma Work in 2015 after his election as an Academician, and a number of new commissions. Among the exhibition’s highlights will be a spectacular recreation of a Victorian gallery hang, which in RSA Gallery 3 will see over 90 works hung as they would have in the 19th Century, from dado rail to ceiling.
