How do artists help us understand Scotland’s development since the Second World War? Art historian Bill Hare explores the startling achievements of modern artists in Scottish Artists in the Age of Change. Meanwhile in Inside & Out, poet and actor Gerda Stevenson writes tenderly about little-known watercolour artist Christian Small, refelcting on the expectations of post-war women. They come together to examine Scottish history through the lens of art.
