Edinburgh Reads is delighted to present Frances Fowle, author of Van Gogh’s Twin: the Scottish Art Dealer Alexander Reid, in conversation with Hil Williamson on Thursday 10 November at 6.30pm in the Reference Library.
Alexander Reid, often a stubborn and difficult individual but a ‘prince among dealers’ brought impressionism to Scotland as well as championing the Glasgow Boys and the Scottish Colourists. Frances tells the fascinating story of his life, including his friendship with artists such as Whistler and Van Gogh.
Frances Fowle is Senior Lecturer in History of Art at the University of Edinburgh and Senior Curator of French art at the National Gallery of Scotland and she curated the ‘Impressionism and Scotland’ exhibition in 2008 and ‘Van Gogh and Britain’ in 2006.
