About the Event

Kirkcaldy Galleries has one of the best collections of 19th and 20th century Scottish paintings in the country. A poll found that Spring Moonlight by John Henry Lorimer is the favourite work of visitors to the museum. In this talk Collections Team Leader at OnFife Gavin Grant will focus on this wonderful scene set in Kellie Castle, as well as other works by Lorimer. He will also say why Kirkcaldy has come to have such an impressive collection and will look at other highlights held in Fife, such as paintings by William McTaggart and the Scottish Colourists.
