Independent & Individualist – Art in Dundee 1867-1924, by Matthew Jarron, is a lavishly illustrated book which explores the first golden age of art in Dundee. In this talk, Matthew will demonstrate how, thanks to the unique talents of John Duncan, Stewart Carmichael, George Dutch Davidson and others, Dundee developed a distinctive new style of art and why, long before its UNESCO City of Design designation, the city was recognised as one of the major art centres of Britain. Matthew is Curator of the University of Dundee Museum Collections, which includes the D’Arcy Thompson Zoology Museum and the Tayside Medical History Museum: expect a fascinating whistle-stop tour of Dundee's rich artistic history.
