BOOK: Scottish Women Artists, Charlotte Rostek
In an age when women are very much part of the contemporary art scene in Scotland, it is easy to forget that their predecessors through the 18th, 19th and well into the 20th centuries often faced an uphill struggle. This book charts and celebrates the story of these Scottish women, from their emergence in the art world in the eighteenth century to today’s internationally recognised stars. Part of our upcoming "Scottish Women Artists - 250 Years of Challenging Perception" exhibition which runs at Dovecot Studios from 28th July - 6th January 2024.
The book introduces a selection of over 60 artists exploring their professional and personal journeys. It includes the pioneering Catherine Read, breakthrough Victorians such as Phoebe Anna Traquair and 1880s Glasgow Girl, Bessie MacNicol. Twentieth century artists range from Beatrice Huntingdon and Anne Redpath to Joan Eardley, Elizabeth Blackadder, Victoria Crowe and Alison Watt. The story is brought to a triumphant conclusion with the winners and headliners of the Turner Prize and the Venice Biennale.
