A New Era: Scottish Modern Art 1900-1950 at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art (Modern Two) examines work made by Scottish artists as they absorbed the great movements of European modern art in the first half of the 20th century, such Fauvism, Cubism, Surrealism and Abstraction. Through more than 100 paintings, sculptures and works on paper by over 50 artists, the exhibition charts Scottish modernism from its beginnings in the first decade of the century, when the likes of J.D. Fergusson and S.J. Peploe experienced first-hand the radical new work produced in Paris by artists such as Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse, to the 1950s, when emerging Scottish artists like Alan Davie, Wilhelmina Barns-Graham and Eduardo Paolozzi were at the forefront of European contemporary art.
