May Morris : Art & Life
Dates:07/10/2017-28/01/2018

May Morris: Art & Life is the most comprehensive survey of May Morris’s work to date, bringing together over 80 works from collections around the UK, many of which have never been on public display. The exhibition reveals the breadth of May's creative pursuits, featuring wallpaper and embroidery alongside jewellery, dresses and book designs, as well as sketches and watercolours. It focuses on May’s development of art embroidery – elevating needlework from a domestic craft to a serious art form – and highlights the extent of her influence in the UK and abroad, particularly the US. A number of rarely seen works from public and private collections are featured in the exhibition, including a pair of expansive silk hangings, which May designed and embroidered in 1895 under the auspices of Morris & Co. The Spring and Summer, and Autumn and Winter panels are thought to have been commissioned for £150 making them most expensive entry in the Morris & Co. order book for that period, and a highlight of the exhibition. Also on display for the first time is a hand painted Valentine card made by May for George Bernard Shaw in 1886, which was recently discovered among an uncatalogued album of cards sent to Shaw in the British Library's collection. May and Shaw were in love though he maintained he was too poor to marry her. He would later insist that a "Mystic Betrothal" had existed between them, yet this did not prevent him from establishing close relationships with other women at the same time. Despite being emotionally rebuffed, May recovered and the pair remained good friends.

A New Era: Scottish Modern Art 1900-1950
Dates:04/12/2017-10/06/2018

The exhibition examines the most progressive work made by Scottish artists as they absorbed and responded to the great movements of European modern art. More than 100 paintings, sculptures and works on paper by over 50 artists are on display. The exhibition charts Scottish modernism from when JD Fergusson and SJ Peploe experienced at first-hand the radical new work produced in Paris by artists such as Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse, to the turn of the 1950s, when emerging Scottish artists like Alan Davie, Doris Zinkeisen, William Gear, Margaret Mellis, and Eduardo Paolozzi were at the forefront of European contemporary art.

The exhibition is named after the New Era group established in Edinburgh in 1939 to show the experimental work of its members. As a compliment to A New Era, Magazines and Manifestos: British Periodicals from 1890 to 1950 is a display in the Keiller Library which explores the proliferation of ‘little magazines’ which became a preferred format for many literary and artistic groups, whose proponents were keen to spread the word and disseminate their new and often radical ideas to a wider public.

Pin Ups | Toulouse-Lautrec and the Art of Celebrity
Dates:06/10/2018-20/01/2019

Pin-ups: Toulouse-Lautrec and the Art of Celebrity will be the first exhibition held at the National Galleries of Scotland devoted to the art of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864-1901). Paris in the fin-de-siècle was known as the 'city of pleasure’; famed for its cabarets, dance halls and cafés. Most famous of all were the nightspots of the bohemian district of Montmartre, where Toulouse-Lautrec lived, worked and socialized, including the now legendary café-cabarets Le Moulin Rouge and Le Chat Noir. Pin-ups: Toulouse Lautrec and the Art of Celebrity will focus on Toulouse-Lautrec’s lithographic posters, portfolio prints and illustrations which made stars of Montmartre’s venues and their entertainers - personalities such as Yvette Guilbert, Jane Avril and Aristide Bruant. Toulouse-Lautrec’s career coincided with a revolutionary moment in the history of western printmaking - the development of the poster as a means of mass-marketing – and lithography and poster-making were central to his creative process from his first experiments in the medium in 1891 until his death in 1901.

L’Art nouveau en Europe centrale
Dates:04/04/2018-04/04/2018

L’Europe centrale a connu autour de 1900 un bouillonnement extraordinaire : l’Art nouveau. Plusieurs foyers sont à mentionner : l’Autriche, avec la Sécession viennoise d’Otto Wagner, Prague avec sa Maison de la Municipalité, réel fer de lance de cette fronde artistico-sociale, ou encore Budapest et son « style national hongrois ». Art total, l’Art nouveau est à comprendre dans son ensemble. Seront évoqués aussi bien les chefs-d’œuvre de la peinture, des arts décoratifs que ceux de l’architecture de ces foyers.
