The 1920s was a period of contrasts: high spirits and sombre reflection, decadent excess and hard realities. One hundred years since the dawn of the 1920s, the City Art Centre staged an exhibition in 2020/21 that explored the events, ideas and styles that shaped Scottish art during this fascinating decade. This lecture provides an introduction to the exhibition if you missed it, investigating a range of artworks by artists including S.J. Peploe, Dorothy Johnstone, Eric Robertson and William McCance, and placing them within the context of their times.
