Exhibition of Robert Adam’s landscape fantasies

Robert Adam is one of the 18th century’s most innovative architects. In his later years Adam spent much of his time producing landscape studies drawn by Adam not for exhibition or for patrons but for relaxation during his leisure hours. These personal sketches feature magnificent castles perched on high rocks, winding roads and towering waterfalls.

Robert Adam is one of the 18th century’s most innovative architects. In his later years Adam spent much of his time producing landscape studies drawn by Adam not for exhibition or for patrons but for relaxation during his leisure hours. These personal sketches feature magnificent castles perched on high rocks, winding roads and towering waterfalls.

The buildings and topography often take as their reference points the landscape and architecture of Adam’s native Scotland, but are mostly entirely imagined. The overall sense of these carefully composed picturesque landscapes is one of “great spirit, beauty and effect”.

This exhibition will include more than 30 landscape watercolour and pen drawings by Robert Adam and by his sketching partners Paul Sandby and John Clerk of Eldin. The exhibition is at the National Gallery of Scotland from the 25th April
