To travel the road to Meikle Seggie is to undertake any journey which offers unexpected opportunities for intellectual growth and self-discovery. In the 1970s, Richard Demarco embarked on a series of journeys, starting in Edinburgh, to recover a sense of our living culture in the environments around us. These radiated out across Europe, underpinning the internationalism of this unique Scottish-Italian artist’s own extraordinary journey. Forty years later, the journey is renewed with this reproduction of Demarco’s original artwork and his first Meikle Seggie essay, along with a new translation into Italian and a new introduction.

This text tells the story of modern Scottish painting and sculpture. It sets out the claim of artists like Macintosh and Fergusson to be partners, not followers in the early modern movement. It traces the impact of the ideas of the Scots Renaissance on the work of painters such as William Godstone, the evolution of a distinct Edinburgh School with Sir William Gillies, Anne Redpath and Sir Robin Philipson. It also details the important place that artists from Scotland such as Joan Eardley, Sir Eduardo Paolozzi and Alan Davie played in the post-war period in Britain. It examines the achievement of Ian Hamilton Finlay, the revolutionary impact of John Bellany's work and finally artists such as Steven Campbell, Ken Currie and others who have marked a new flowering of Scottish art in the 1980s and 1990s.
