Dame Elizabeth Blackadder is one of Scotland’s greatest artists, celebrated for her beguiling and lyrical paintings of flowers. A passionate plantswoman, Blackadder’s garden has provided rich inspiration year-round, from daffodils to autumn leaves, tulips, iris and lilies.

This exhibition, curated with The Scottish Gallery, brings together a selection of watercolours, etchings and screenprints from throughout her life in the theme of growth, looking ahead to the renewal of life that is always around the corner in the garden.

Blackadder (born 24 September 1931) is the first woman to be elected to both the Royal Scottish Academy and the Royal Academy. She taught at Edinburgh College of Art from 1962 until her retirement in 1986. Her work can be seen at Tate, the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, and the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and has appeared on a series of Royal Mail stamps.

The works in this exhibition will available for purchase in aid of the Garden Museum’s education programme.
