Provides the first dedicated study of the fascinating transformation of a private home into an art college into an essential facet of Scottish art education that proved a highly significant force in Scottish art. Featuring unpublished archival material alongside paintings, drawings and prints from public and private collections, this well-illustrated book reveals new connections between and insight into the work of well-known Scottish artists such as James Cowie, Joan Eardley, Ian McKenzie Smith and Gwen Hardie while also introducing the innovative work of their contemporaries. Excerpts from newly recorded oral history interviews give voice to the personal meaning of the Hospitalfield experience to countless artists’ lives and careers.
