It is called ‘Proposed and Seconded: The Royal Scottish Academy Nomination Books of the 1920s‘ and will take place at the City Art Centre at 2pm on Thursday 13 May 2021. It is free, but booking is essential.
The 1920s Nomination Books for membership of the Royal Scottish Academy of Art and Architecture provide a unique insight into the Scottish art world of the decade. This talk will focus on the women artists proposed and seconded for election by male allies, including Dorothy Johnstone (1892-1980, see above), Cecile Walton (1891-1956) and John Duncan (1866-1945).
The Bright Shadows exhibition will run from 12 September 2020 until 6 June 2021.
