Posted in ART, ART HISTORY, ART VIDEOS, exhibitions with tags , , , on January 25, 2011 by echostains

To commemorate Burns Night, the greatest Scottish poet (tonight) I have compiled a special video of Scottish artists and artists associated with the National Galleries of Scotland.  Favorites of mine include Allan Ramsay, Anya Gallaccio,Duncan Grant George Leslie Hunter, Glenn Onwin, RB Kitaj,Joseph Crawhall, Norman Edgar, Oskar Kokoschka and Robert Burns! Which are yours?

To further the Scottish theme, there is a post about Robert Burns and a poetry competition over on Bookstains.  Don’t worry the entries don’t have to be written in the Scottish language but that would be GREAT also 🙂
