Centenary Exhibition

Sir Robin Philipson

02 Mar 2016 - 30 Mar 2016

To meet Sir Robin Philipson was to encounter a man of charm and distinction, dressed slightly self-consciously in a bow tie and either a dapper, sometimes striped, jacket or else one splattered in paint. Conversation could range widely, revealing his interest in poetry as much as the visual arts to which he was making such a vital contribution. He can be considered to have been the most successful figure in Edinburgh’s art establishment in the third quarter of the twentieth century.
