No Foreign Land

The Fleming Collection began in 1962 as a corporate collection of paintings intended to hang on the walls of bank Robert Fleming & Co. The aim was to collect only Scottish scenes, preferably painted by Scottish artists, but a Scottish scene painted by a foreign artist would do. But Scottish artists worked in other countries too. Today The Fleming Collection at 13 Berkeley Street, London, opened No Foreign Land: Landscapes from the Fleming Collection (CLICK). Shown is a most unusual work by William Crozier painted on both sides of the canvas. Left is The Slopes of Fiesole, Tuscany. right (verso) Edinburgh from Castle Street.
