The painting by Robert Sanderson shows a drill parade on the Castle esplanade. The painting is part of the City Art Centre collection. The artist also painted a portrait of Greyfriars Bobby which is owned privately. Painters, past and present, have depicted Edinburgh in countless different ways as both a backdrop and as the subject of great art. In this live EWH event, the panel will share and talk about some of their favourite Edinburgh paintings, and discuss why the city has been such an inspiration for artists over the years. Special guests include Scottish watercolourist Hugh Buchanan, RSA New Contemporaries 2020 young artist Lyndsey Mackenzie and Patricia Allerston, who is chief curator of European and Scottish art and portraiture at the National Galleries of Scotland. Tickets are free for new members of Edinburgh World Heritage.
