Events in Angus and Dundee
The Orchar Collection
James Guthrie Orchar was one of Dundee's most prominent businessmen. A successful inventor, engineer and entrepreneur, today he is remembered primarily as a patron of the arts. His art collection - which contains over 400 paintings, drawings and prints - survives intact and is regarded as one of the most important Victorian collections of Scottish art in the country.
The display, which is a new gallery for Broughty Castle, features 30 paintings from the Orchar Collection - a selection of portraits, landscapes and still lifes by artists of the Robert Scott Lauder Group, including William McTaggart, Hugh Cameron, George Paul Chalmers and William Quiller Orchardson. It also includes twentieth century paintings by Alec Grieve, Philip de Laszlo and James McIntosh Patrick.
Oct to March: Tue to Sat 10am-4pm, Sun 12.30-4pm, Closed Mon
April to Sept: Mon to Sat 10am-4pm, Sun 12.30-4pm.
