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, Japanese art, 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, the most comprehensive display of Mackie’s work in over a century, 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.
