As this exhibition at the Scottish Gallery shows, Edinburgh also had Aitken Dott supplying quality paintings to its clients – the most significant being the Fife linen magnate, J.W. Blyth, who during the first half of last century amassed a collection of over 200 pictures. As the informative catalogue shows, Blyth had his own particular tastes in painting –with favourites like McTaggart and Peploe –whose works, through Blyth’s civic generosity, are well represented in Kirkcaldy Art Gallery. Blyth was also a determined advocate of Scottish art within the wider British scene. That has, to a great extent been achieved, with regular Scottish successes in the Turner Prize, but whether Blyth’s taste would have approved of their art is another matter . .
