• An (Almost) A to Z of Modern Scottish Women Artists

Uncover an A to Z of Modern Scottish Women Artists to bookmark in this insightful talk. 

Alice Strang, former Senior Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the National Galleries of Scotland and curator of the landmark exhibition Modern Scottish Women: Painters and Sculptors 1885-1965, will take us through an (almost) A to Z of Modern Scottish Women Artists, from Mary Armour to Anna Zinkeisen, based on works in UK public collections.

During this period significant progress was made in terms of gender equality and women being able to train and practise as artists, with the works featured dating from 1904 to 1990.

Concentrating on painters, Strang will lead us through one example each by nineteen artists – some of whom are well-known, whilst others may be new to you. Suggestions to fill in the seven gaps in the alphabet are warmly welcomed!
