"Alan Davie"
2000-11-11 until 2001-01-14
Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art
Edinburgh, , UK United Kingdom

Alan Davie was born in Grangemouth in 1920 and studied at Edinburgh College of Art in the late 1930s. A pioneer of Abstract Expressionism, he became one of the most highly regarded European artists of the post-war era. In 1997 the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art purchased four major paintings of the 1950s and 1960s, and at the same time the artist donated a large number of oils, drawings and prints.

Thisexhibition, which celebrates Davie's eightieth birthday, is drawn entirely from the Gallery's unrivalled holding of his work. It features some twenty-five large oil paintings, as well as gouaches, drawings and prints dating from 1939 to the present day. The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated colour catalogue.
