Adam Bruce Thomson ( Protected content ) was one of the most quietly impactful artists of his generation. Born in Edinburgh, he attended Edinburgh College of Art, following its establishment in Protected content .
In his own practice, Thomson worked across a range of media, mastering various printmaking techniques, drawing in pastels, and painting in oils and watercolours. His subject-matter was similarly diverse, spanning portraiture, still life, architecture and landscape themes.
Thomson exhibited widely and was well-respected by his peers, receiving an OBE in Protected content .
However, as a naturally modest individual, his understated approach often denied him the spotlight. To date, his contribution to twentieth-century Scottish art remains largely unexplored.
The forthcoming exhibition Adam Bruce Thomson: The Quiet Path aims to bring this talented artist back to public attention. Arranged over two floors of the City Art Centre, the display will chart Thomson’s extensive career, from his early student compositions to the evocative Scottish landscapes of his maturity.
AFTER the exhibition, lunch will be at Divino Enoteca at 12:30. Please, find attached a set menu with options. The price of the menu is £ 35.
A £ 10 deposit is required to secure the booking and the restaurant gave me one week from now to pay it.
Please, secure your attendance by transferring me the deposit by Thursday 25th April.
