Edinburgh Episode 14 Art

Galleries, artists, portraits and landscapes

A tour of Edinburgh’s galleries and a chance to get to know some of Scotland’s best-known artists and paintings.  That includes portraits of royalty and Enlightenment thinkers, plus the great and the good from more recent times: Sir Chris Hoy, Ian Rankin, Muriels Spark and Gray. We also cover Scottish landscape painting and scenes from rural life in the past: Pitlessie Fair, Neil Gow, (18th century touring fiddler extraordinaire), an ice-skating vicar and The Monarch of the Glen.
