This display, which occupies the whole top floor of Modern One, highlights some fabulous recent additions to the National Galleries Collection.
Among the new acquisitions are a major bequest from the collection of the late Henry and Sula Walton of prints by Picasso, Cézanne, and Hockney and paintings by Joan Eardley and others works by Michael Craig-Martin, donated by Eric and Jean Cass through the Contemporary Art Society; paintings by Carole Gibbons, Charles Pulsford and Edwin G. Lucas, superb watercolours by Glasgow Girls Margaret MacDonald Mackintosh and Frances MacNair and much more besides.
To accompany the New Acquisitions display the National Galleries of Scotland have created a collection in ArtHunter. This collection features 11 different works that are on display in the exhibition for you to capture, with extra content relating to each ‘unlocked’ when the code next to the work is inputted into the app. The content features curators talking about how the works became part of the collection, related artworks, video and trivia.
