National Galleries Scotland: Collections

While the National Galleries Scotland's four physical locations in Edinburgh are completing a phased re-opening adhering to pandemic guidelines, the Collections website provides a handy way to virtually tour the Galleries' artifacts. Here, readers will find works currently in storage, or otherwise not on view, as well as artworks held at any of the locations, including the Scottish National Gallery, Modern One, Modern Two, and the Portrait Gallery. Artworks are organized into browsable groups, such as New Acquisitions, Surrealism, Contemporary Art in Scotland, Highlights, and Photography. After selecting a particular work, it is possible to find more information about the artist, related works, and even curated shopping suggestions. For example, the page for John Singer Sargent's portrait Lady Agnew of Lochnaw (1864 - 1932), painted in 1892 and currently out on loan, links to more information about Sargent, the audio guide to the painting, topically related works, and a Sargent-inspired silk scarf that can be ordered online from the Gallery shop. The Art & Artists tab provides other ways to browse across the site, using categories such as "artists" and "artworks."
