THE STORY OF SCOTTISH ART journeys through 5,000 years of Scottish Art.  Since the Neolithic era, creativity has played a vital role in shaping the course of Scotland’s history.  The first tribal leaders, chieftains and Kings of the emerging nation used art to cement their authority. Over the turbulent centuries that followed, artists were always at the heart of action – holding a mirror to the faces, places and events that defined Scotland’s story.   Its a tale of radicals and visionaries , artists with an international mind-set and a bold send of their heritage who resolved to create work on the frontline of Western Art and Culture.

LACHLAN GOUDIE is an artist. He grew  up in Glasgow and is the son of the Scottish painter Alexander Goudie.  After studying English at Christ’s College Cambridge, he completed a degree in Fine Art at the Camberwell College of Art.  Lachlan’s painting have won numerous awards and he is a Member of the Royal Institute of Painters.  He has written and presented the landmark BBC television series: THE STORY OF SCOTTISH ART  and was nominated by the Royal Television Society Scotland for the ‘On Screen Personality of the Year’ Award.  Lachlan is a regular television presenter and broadcaster and a Judge on BBC1 ‘Big Painting Challenge’.
