Abstract :
Explores the ways in which Celtic revival theorists and artists asserted a Scottish identity within unionist-nationalist terms. While drawing on Scottish heritage for subject matter, or on broader British themes portrayed in an identifiably Scottish manner, their intended audience was British, not exclusively Scottish. The confident unionist-nationalist theme is seen in the early genre work of David Wilkie. Towards the end of the century the focus of Scottish identity shifted from 'Highlandism' to ancient history and mythology, but the Celtic revival was still a development rather than a departure from unionism-nationalism, in contrast with the Celtic revival in Ireland. George Henry and E.A. Hornel were in the vanguard of the Scottish Celtic revival in Glasgow, again drawing on all Britain's Celtic past. In Edinburgh it was led principally by William Sharp and Patrick Geddes who commissioned John Duncan's murals for the common room of Ramsay Lodge. Begun around 1895, Duncan's paintings stress Scotland's internationalism as well as her individuality. ;
