Abstract

A partnership between the Royal Scottish Academy and the National Galleries of Scotland.
In collaboration with the Universities of St Andrews, Edinburgh and Dundee
THE LARGEST COLLECTIONS EXHIBITION EVER MOUNTED BY THE RSA

Ages of Wonder builds on the moment in 1910 when the Royal Scottish Academy transferred a number of significant works to the National Collection, securing exhibiting rights within the building shared by the two institutions today. The Academy had been a force behind the establishment of a national collection and NGS and RSA had previously coexisted in what is now the National Gallery of Scotland. Ages of Wonder reunites RSA works transferred to NGS with a selection of those remaining in the Academy’s Nationally Significant Collection and those collected by the Academy up to the present day.

The exhibition includes over 450 works by over 270 artists and architects, from the masterpiece ‘The Adoration of the Magi’ painted by Jacopo Bassano of 1540, to recent Diploma Works by Callum Innes RSA and Alison Watt RSA, and works commissioned for and during the exhibition by Calum Colvin RSA, Kenny Hunter RSA and Richard Murphy RSA.
