Art Funded Works by William McTaggart Shown in Centenary Celebration at Kirkcaldy Museum and Art Gallery
This major exhibition, curated by freelance curator, Susanna Hastilow, takes a new line in exploring his work by focusing on the children in his paintings.
KIRKCALDY.- Kirkcaldy Museum and Art Gallery is this month marking the centenary of Scottish artist William McTaggart's death with an exhibition celebrating his work. McTaggart's Children will showcase his beautiful paintings of children in sunny cornfields and next to stormy seas. It is open from now until 13 October.

The exhibition contains 12 paintings which were bought with assistance from membership charity the Art Fund in 1964. They were acquired when over 100 paintings amassed by a local collector were put up for sale by his family.

This major exhibition, curated by freelance curator, Susanna Hastilow, takes a new line in exploring his work by focusing on the children in his paintings. McTaggart had a close relationship with his own 15 children and often used them as models. For McTaggart’s Children Fife Council has borrowed from public and private lenders, 28 paintings, brought together for the first time, to hang alongside 20 paintings from Kirkcaldy’s collection. The show contains pictures borrowed from galleries in London, including the Tate, as well as from galleries in Aberdeen, Bradford, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Greenock. Members of the McTaggart family have also lent some paintings along with other private collectors and The Royal Bank of Scotland Group.
