Peter Howson

1 Jun-8 Jul 2023


Flowers Gallery is delighted to present an exhibition of works by Scottish painter Peter Howson to coincide with his major retrospective at Edinburgh City Art Centre, When the Apple Ripens: Peter Howson at 65.  

Considered one of his generation’s leading figurative painters, Howson was a focal member of a group of young artists to emerge from Glasgow School of Art in the 1980s, dubbed the ‘New Glasgow Boys.’ When the Apple Ripens, curated by David Patterson,  marks Howson’s first major retrospective, bringing together over one hundred works from his student days to the present, many of which have never before been shown to the public.  

The presentation of works at Flowers Gallery brings together a selection of striking large-scale paintings from the 1980s to the present day. When the Apple Ripens: Peter Howson at 65: A Retrospective. (This link opens in a new tab). is at City Art Centre, Edinburgh from 27 May 2023 until 1 October 2023.
