About Lecture: Bright Shadows: Scottish Art in the 1920s
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.
Dr Helen Scott is Curator of Fine Art at the City Art Centre.
