E. A. Hornel: From Camera to Canvas – the first major exhibition on the artist for over 35 years – will demonstrate how photography underpins almost all the work of Scottish artist Edward Atkinson Hornel.


Taking place at the City Art Centre in Edinburgh, this is the first time in a major exhibition that a selection of Hornel's paintings from Broughton House & Garden (cared for by the National Trust for Scotland) will be displayed alongside examples from his photographic collection. The exhibition will trace the evolution of his painting style from the 1880s to the late 1920s, showing the continuing and increasing impact of photography.
