The most famous Scottish painting is French
The National Gallery of Scotland is a wonderful place. The most famous picture by far is a picture of The Reverend Robert Walker Skating On Duddingston Loch. This image here is so ingrained in Scottish culture that the wonderful lines of the painting are incorporated into the new Scottish Parliament building. The Scotsman and myself went to Edinburgh a couple of years ago. He lived just outside Edinburgh in East Linton as a child, then moved to Driffield in Yorkshire at 12. Anyway, the whole point of this post is that people in Scotland were choking over their marmalade yesterday when they saw this! It looks as if the painting is French!
