About the Event

This, the first retrospective of his work, will explore Lorimer’s art  through five key themes: light, identity, family, femininity and home.  Interior scenes of elegant Edwardian family life together with  light-filled landscapes are the hallmark of this technically gifted, but  somewhat forgotten, artist. In 1878 the Lorimer family acquired the  lease of Kellie Castle in Fife, and the castle and its grounds became  the subject of many of Lorimer’s paintings. The exhibition includes  works from public and private collections, the majority of which have  not been on public display before.

Entry to the exhibition is free. Please see the City Art Centre's website for further details: https://www.edinburghmuseums.org.uk/whats-on/reflections-light-and-life-john-henry-lorimer-1856-1936
