Exhibition of works by East Linton painter, Robert Noble RSA.

Don’t miss the opportunity to see ‘The Robert Noble Centenary Exhibition: Painting the Landscape of East Lothian’ at the John Gray Centre Museum, Haddington which closes next week, on Wednesday 5 July. This unique exhibition celebrates the life, legacy and works of East Linton painter, Robert Noble RSA, PSSA (1857–1917). 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. Light, colour and a love of nature abound in the display which celebrates the best of East Lothian’s countryside. Here are just a few of the comments from people who have visited so far:

  • “Loved the Robert Noble Exhibition”
  • “Very interesting exhibition about Robert Noble. Thank you”
  • “Robert Noble paintings are full of light”
  • “Noble exhibition excellent, great job by all concerned...”
  • “Noble exhibition – excellent”

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.

The exhibition has been co-ordinated by Dunpender Community Council with assistance from East Lothian Council.
