Last week we went to The Printmaker’s Art exhibition in Edinburgh. Here are a few of the highlights. This exhibition isn’t a free one, unless you are a ‘Friend of the Galleries’. It costs £14 for an adult ticket. It was very busy, possibly because it doesn’t have all that long to run now, it closes on February the 25th. The prints below are some of my favourites.
Sudden Shower below the Summit by Hokusai.
Concert Hall by Sybil Andrews
Virginia Woolf by her sister Vanessa Bell
Jane Avril by Toulouse Lautrec
The Triple Hecate by William Blake
Grey Horse Head by Elisabeth Frink
It’s a big exhibition, with four large rooms to visit, featuring Warhol, Picasso, Elizabeth Blackadder, Durer, Lichtenstein, Hockney and many more. I always find art galleries to be too hot and so exhausting, but it was well worth visiting.
This coming week we’re going to Edinburgh to visit a couple of art exhibitions before they close, the time seems to go so quickly nowadays. So we’ll be going to the City Art Centre which is just at the back of Waverley Railway Station to see the Exhibition, and then on to the National Gallery on Princes Street to see The Printmaker’s Art from Rembrandt to Rego exhibition.
But soonish we hope to be travelling further afield, weather permitting, maybe even down to England, so I’ve been doing some research. There are plenty of places we haven’t visited before. As a good Scot I like to get my money’s worth, and as a member of the Scottish National Trust and Historic Scotland I/we can get into the English versions free too. I’ll be happy to get recommendations from any of you who have enjoyed days out in any of them.
