Dame Elizabeth Blackadder is one of our greatest artists: the first woman to be elected both to the Royal Scottish Academy and the Royal Academy, she was given the prestigious title of Her Majesty’s Painter and Limner in Scotland in 2001. Such public accolades highlight her long and distinguished career but her art remains quietly personal. She has charted a very individual course throughout the second half of the 20th century and beyond, unswayed by fashion, a tireless devotion to her practice as an artist her guiding principle. This specially curated exhibition, drawn mainly from the artist’s studio, shows the breadth and variety of Blackadder’s work and aims to reveal and celebrate an exceptional career.
