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
