This book tells the story of modern Scottish painting and sculpture. It sets out the claim of such artists as Charles Rennie Mackintosh and J D Ferguson to be partners, not followers, in the early modern movement. It traces the impact of the ideas of the Scots Renaissance on the work of painters like William Johnstone, the evolution of a distinct Edinburgh School with Sir William Gillies, Anne Redpath and Sir Robin Philipson, and the important place that artists from Scotland such as Joan Eardley, Sir Eduardo Paolozzi and Alan Davie played in the post-war period in Britain. It examines the remarkable achievement of Ian Hamilton Finlay and the revolutionary impact of John Bellamy's work and then brings the story right up to date, describing the astonishing talent of Steven Campbell, Ken Currie and the many other artists who have marked a new flowering of Scottish Art in the last decade or so. This new edition follows the success of the author's Scottish Art 1460-2000 which was awarded the Saltire Society/Scotsman Prize for Scottish Book of the Year when first published and was described as 'definitive' by Marina Vaizey in the Sunday Times.
