Scottish Paintings & Sculpture


Lyon & Turnbull’s Scottish Paintings & Sculpture specialists host two auctions per year from our Scottish auction house based in Edinburgh. Successfully selling over 90% of Scottish Colourist works handled in the last seven years, a record unmatched by our competitors – selling Scottish art in Scotland has always been a Lyon & Turnbull lynchpin. Our specialists are experts not only on the works of Scottish artists, but also on the workings of the art market, and it is this combination that fuels our on-going success in the field.

Our Specialist Auctions

Our Scottish Paintings & Sculpture auctions feature work from the 18th to the 20th century, from the Romantic landscapes of Alexander Nasmyth and portraiture of Allan Ramsay and Sir Henry Raeburn, to the highly collectable works of Joan Eardley and Anne Redpath. All Scottish Art movements are represented, including the Glasgow Boys, the Edinburgh School and, of course, the Scottish Colourists: Peploe, Fergusson, Hunter and Cadell.

The next specialist Scottish Paintings auction is scheduled for 5th December 2019, for more information speak to our specialists in Edinburgh on 0131 557 8844.
