Edinburgh Public Art Galleries

Gallery of Modern Art
75 Belford Road
Edinburgh
EH4 3DR

The Gallery of Modern Art is a one of most impressive Scottish art galleries. The art gallery is set in extensive parkland, where visitors can discover sculpture works by important artists like Ian Hamilton Finlay, Henry Moore, Rachel Whiteread and Barbara Hepworth. The lawn to the front of the Gallery of Modern Art was re-landscaped in 2002 to a design by Charles Jencks. This dramatic work, or 'landform', comprises a stepped, serpentine mound reflected in three crescent-shaped pools of water.

The Gallery of Modern Art shows special exhibitions and art works from c.1900 to present day contemporary Scottish and International artists. The first floor of the gallery is most often used for special exhibitions and smaller, temporary displays. Art works from the Gallery's collection, augmented by special loans, are presented on the second floor. The early part of the collection features French and Russian art from the beginning of the twentieth century, Cubist paintings and superb holdings of Expressionist and modern British art. Special highlights include paintings by Matisse and Picasso.

The Gallery also has an outstanding collection of international post-war work and the most important and extensive collection of modern Scottish art. The post-war collection features art by Francis Bacon, David Hockney, Andy Warhol and Lucian Freud, with more recent works by artists including Antony Gormley, Gilbert & George, Damien Hirst and Tracey Emin.



National Galleries of Scotland
National Gallery Complex
The Mound

Edinburgh
EH2 2EL

The National Gallery Complex is one of Scotland's top free visitor attractions and Edinburgh's second most-visited attraction after the Castle. It is made up of three interconnected buildings, right in the heart of Edinburgh. The National Gallery of Scotland is home to a major part of Scotland's national collection of fine art; the Royal Scottish Academy Building (RSA) is one of Europe's premier venues for international exhibitions.

The Royal Scottish Academy and the National Gallery of Scotland stand in the heart of Edinburgh. Although originally built as separate structures, their histories have long been intertwined.

The National Gallery houses the national collection of fine art from the early Renaissance to the end of the nineteenth century. At the gallery there are masterpieces from Raphael, Titian, El Greco, Velázquez, Rembrandt and Rubens to Van Gogh, Monet, Cézanne, Degas and Gauguin. For a nation of Scotland's size, the collection is rightfully regarded as one of the very best in the world. The most comprehensive part of the collection covers the history of Scottish painting. All the major names, including Ramsay, Raeburn, Wilkie and McTaggart, are represented in depth. Works on show include Raeburn's much-loved The Reverend Robert Walker Skating on Duddingston Loch or, as it has become known, the 'Skating Minister'.

In front of the National gallery is the Royal Scottish Academy Building which is a wonderful venue for temporary art exhibitions. It has two floors of art exhibition space, and current art exhibitions are listed on the National Galleries website.




Glasgow Public Art Galleries

Gallery of Modern Art
Royal Exchange Square
Glasgow
G1 3AH

The Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA) is the second most visited contemporary art gallery outside London. It offers a programme of temporary art exhibitions and workshops. GoMA displays art work by Scottish and international artists. It also addresses contemporary social issues through its major biannual projects.

The Gallery of Modern Art opened in 1996 and is housed in an elegant, neo-classical building in the heart of Glasgow city centre. The building was refurbished to house the city's contemporary art collection, and is an appealing combination of old and new architecture. It incorporates a number of artists' commissions.

Over the years the gallery has welcomed several million art visitors since opening. The Gallery continues to evolve, developing existing and attracting new Scottish art audiences. The rooftop café has now changed into a dedicated Education and Access studio, facilitating workshops and artists talks for all ages.

In the basement is the Library at GoMA. Complete with its café, free Internet access terminals, multimedia, art, and general book-lending facilities, the Library complements the contemporary visual art focus of the Gallery.
