“The latest fascinating find to shed new light on Scotland’s rich history”
New York Post
Focussing on the two 17th-century artists Adrian Vanson and Adam de Colone, this small exhibition presents the findings of a collaborative research project with paintings conservator Dr Caroline Rae, the Courtauld Institute of Art Caroline Villers Research Fellow. On display are a group of paintings from the National Galleries of Scotland collection which have been examined by Caroline using cutting-edge technology.
The display will also feature the very exciting discovery of a painting of a woman believed to be Mary, Queen of Scots, hidden underneath a painting by Adrian Vanson. The painting, which is owned by the National Trust, will be in the exhibition alongside more information about the hidden painting.
