Painting the Landscape of East Lothian is a major new exhibition now on show the John Gray Centre Museum, Haddington until 5 July 2017.

This unique exhibition celebrates the life, legacy and works of East Linton painter, Robert Noble RSA, PSSA (1857–1917). Light, colour and a love of nature abound in the display which celebrates the best of East Lothian’s countryside.

Robert Noble inspired many artists to paint outdoors in the East Lothian countryside and became the focal point of a creative community near his home in East Linton. He was at the forefront of change within the art establishment championing new and progressive art, a member of the Royal Scottish Academy and a founding member and the first president of the Society of Scottish Artists. This major new exhibition explores the painter’s techniques and highlights key works and subjects showing Noble’s importance to Scottish history and East Lothian’s heritage.

All the works in the exhibition have been kindly lent by private collections and in many cases it is the first time they have been publicly displayed. The exhibition has been co-ordinated by Dunpender Community Council with assistance from East Lothian Council.
