Dress, Dogs, and Dynasty: One of the National Galleries of Scotland’s most recent acquisitions is Henry Raeburn’s portraits of the young brothers, William Stuart and John Stuart Hepburn Forbes. Dr Heather Carroll will take a closer look at these portraits which allow us a glimpse of childhood in early nineteenth-century Scotland.
In order to protect our vulnerable works of art from any kind of accidental damage we kindly ask all visitors to either carry their rucksack/backpack by hand or place it in a locker.
The disabled parking bays are currently not in use.
From mid-December until the completion of the project, there will be no disabled access to rooms 14, 17 and 18 where we show 19th and early 20th Century Art, including Scottish Art, Impressionism and Post-Impressionism. Find out more.
We apologise for any inconvenience the above changes may cause.
The Scottish National Gallery can be found just off Princes Street in the city centre.
