Beyond Caravaggio
Description:

Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (1571–1610) was a radical and revolutionary artist whose work had a transformative impact on art in Italy, and beyond, during his lifetime and in the decades following his premature death. Brilliant, challenging, argumentative and violent, our image of his work is inseparable from his tumultuous personal life, which combined support from several of the most discriminating patrons of the day, with repeated appearances in the Roman law courts. His dramatic lighting and compositions and his radically new approach to subject matter exerted a huge influence on a host of artists.

True to Life – British Realist Painting in the 1920s and 1930s

It focuses on scrupulously detailed realist painting, part of a worldwide trend at the time, and features work by more than 50 artists. When abstract art became fashionable after the Second World War, these artists became sidelined and largely forgotten. This is the largest assembly of British realist art since the period itself. Showing only in Edinburgh.

A Perfect Chemistry: Photographs by Hill and Adamson
Description:

Only four years after the invention of photography was announced to the world in 1839, two Scots had mastered the new medium and were producing works of breathtaking skill in extraordinary quantities. A Perfect Chemistry explores the uniquely productive and influential partnership of David Octavius Hill (1802-1870) and Robert Adamson (1821-1848), which lasted a few short years from 1843 until early 1848. These stunning images, which belie the almost unimaginable technical challenges faced by the duo, are arguably among the first examples of social documentary in the history of photography.
