Scottish Art

The National Galleries of Scotland is responsible for the national collection of Scottish art, the most important of its kind in the world. Our definition of Scottish art is broad, and embraces artworks and artists with a varied range of associations with this country – from the artist’s nationality to the subject of the work. In this collection, you can explore a selection of highlights from our collection of Scottish art.
