The Italian Connection

From September 2019, Edinburgh’s City Art Centre hosts a fascinating new exhibition exploring the creative links between Scotland and Italy, which have remained strong for hundreds of years.

Italian Connection Collage

The Italian Connection celebrates the enduring bond between these two countries, looking at the continuing ability of art to transcend geographical borders – a topic which remains hugely relevant in the politics of the 21st century. The new exhibition explores the many different ways Scottish artists have been influenced by Italy, and the significant contribution that Italians have made to visual arts in Scotland. The display includes work by prominent artists such as: Allan Ramsay, E.A Walton, F.C.B. Cadell, Joan Eardley, Eduardo Paolozzi and Elizabeth Blackadder.
