Aberdeen Art Gallery #1

So here is a few of the images I shot in Aberdeen’s newly refurbished Art Gallery – if you get the chance it is well worth a visit. The Fine Art collections are of local, national and international significance. The major strengths of the collections range from the period c.1850 to the present day, with particularly rich holdings of 19th century French art – including outstanding examples by Daubigny, Fantin-Latour, Boudin, Bastien-Lepage, Monet, Renoir, Toulouse-Lautrec, Vuillard and Bonnard – 19th & 20th century Scottish art; early 20th century English art and a growing collection of challenging international art of the 21st century. Artists’ portraits and self-portraits form one important collection area as does our unrivalled holding of work by James McBey. (Aberdeen Art Gallery Website)

For me personally it was the Degas and Monet but also a full free exhibition by Scotland’s own Magnum Photographer Martin Parr – which is worth the trip alone. For me it was about the building mainly and it was completely free with only a suggested donation towards costs.

  1. Very nice… I particularly liked the palette (can’t explain why?) The focus and dof is striking. I got it even with my fuzzy old eyes. Great shooting.

  2. I rummaged through my photo archives and found that we visited the Aberdeen Gallery in August 2014. What a difference – fabulous upgrade. Even back in 2014, the ABDAG was remarkable for their collection. They had a remarkable exhibition of Kaffe Fassett – colour and more colours. Exquisite. that was http://www.kaffefassett.com/
