Synopsis

This work contains alphabetically arranged entries on some 2000 painters, both major and minor figures, who have worked in Scotland since 1600. Each artist is placed in an art historical context and given full biographical details. There is also a series of generic entries covering artistic institutions and groupings ranging from the National Galleries of Scotland and the Trustees' Academy to the 'Glasgow Boys' and the 'Colourists'. This edition, containing illustrations up to and including the most recent Scottish artists - Watt, Bellany, Conroy and Vettriano - is an extremely useful reference work for collectors, dealers, galleries and museums, as well as anyone with an interest in Scottish painting. The Dictionary of Scottish Painters is considered an essential reference for any one interested in Scottish art. This new Birlinn edition has been meticulously updated and contains extensive new material.

Julian Halsby studied History of Art at Cambridge before becoming Senior Lecturer at a London art college, as well as dealing in 19th century English and Scottish art. He has written seven books including Scottish Watercolours 1740-1940 and many articles for The Artist magazine. He lectures for NADFAS and adult education courses, and is an elected member of the Critics Circle, the International Association of Art Critics, the Royal Society of Arts and the Royal Society of British Artists. Paul Harris is a professional writer and lecturer and long time collector of art. He works internationally and his Scottish base is in North Berwick. He is the author of more than forty books on subjects ranging from art, photography and journalism to whisky and cookery. His autobiography, More Thrills than Skills, was published in 2009.
