Fun in the Sun for the Fleming Collection

My ‘Fun in the Sun’ feature for the Fleming Collection is now live on their website.

A little introduction to the Fleming Collection, from their website:

“The Fleming Collection furthers an understanding and awareness of Scottish art and creativity through exhibitions, events, publishing and education with an emphasis placed on initiatives outside Scotland. 

The collection, which is owned by The Fleming-Wyfold Art Foundation, is considered the finest collection of Scottish art outside public institutions comprising over 600 works from the seventeenth century to the present day.”

For this feature we celebrated the improvement in the weather and thoughts turning towards summer holidays, by looking at how artists captured ‘fun in the sun’ in works in the collection. Paintings by Joan Eardley (1921-63), Edward Atkinson Hornel (1864-1933), Alberto Morrocco (1917-98) – as seen above – and David MacBeth Sutherland (1883-1973) are discussed.
