Books in Focus: Sketchbooks | Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art (Modern Two) Reading Room | Thursday, 04. April 2019

Tickets limited to 10 spaces
Our series of ‘Books in Focus’ sessions focuses on artists’ books and archive material held in the special collections of the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art. This session will look at a selection of sketchbooks by Scottish artists or artists working in Scotland, including a group of working sketchbooks used en plein air by William McTaggart from around 1863 to 1881 and the fascinating sketchbooks of his grandson Sir William MacTaggart. It will also feature 20th century artists including Oskar Kokoschka, Joan Eardley and Josef Sekalski.
This event will take place in the Reading Room at Modern Two
