The Scottish painter and printmaker Charles Hodge Mackie (1862-1920) was one of the most versatile artists of his generation. Based in Edinburgh, he embraced an international outlook, drawing inspiration from French Symbolism, the Celtic Revival movement and the landscapes of his European travels. His experimentation with different media was similarly wide-ranging, covering murals, woodblock prints, book design and sculpture as well as oil paintings and watercolours.

This major retrospective, timed to coincide with the centenary of Mackie’s death, showcases the breadth of his creative vision and talents.  It brings together over 50 artworks from public and private collections, including loans from the National Galleries of Scotland, the Royal Scottish Academy of Art & Architecture and Perth Museum & Art Gallery.

Charles H. Mackie: Colour and Light is presented as part of Edinburgh Art Festival 2020.
