Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art – Modern One

The Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art is a must-see venue for modern and contemporary art across two buildings and fantastic sculpture parks.

In Modern One works from the Gallery’s collection, plus special loans, are presented. The early part of the collection features French and Russian art from the beginning of the twentieth century, cubist paintings and superb holdings of expressionist and modern British art. Special highlights include paintings by Matisse and Picasso.

The Gallery also has an outstanding collection of international post-war work and the most important and extensive collection of modern Scottish art. The post-war collection features art by Francis Bacon, David Hockney, Andy Warhol and Lucian Freud, with more recent works by artists including Antony Gormley, Gilbert & George, Damien Hirst and Tracey Emin.

Admission is free. A charge may be made for special exhibitions
