Impressionism & Scotland - catalogue extract

Copy of an extract from the National Galleries of Scotland catalogue 'Impressionism & Scotland' 2008 page 128 providing detail about Robert Thomas Hamilton Bruce (1846-1899) latterly resident at the Grange, Dornoch (now premises of the Royal Golf Hotel). The extract highlights that one of Robert Bruce's major achievements was the leading role he played in the organisation of the Loan Collection of French and Dutch paintings for the Edinburgh International Exhibition of Industry, Science and Art in 1886. Bruce lent a substantial amount of his paintings to the loan collection.
