STAFF at the National Gallery of Scotland were making sure everything was in place ahead of the opening of Red Chalk: Raphael to Ramsay, tomorrow.

The new exhibition will explore the medium of red chalk, and includes some 35 works, including Raphael’s Study of a Kneeling Nude (1518) and Allan Ramsay’s iconic drawing from 1776 of his second wife, Margaret Lindsay, centre.

The collection will also include work by other Scottish artists such as David Allan, William Delacour and Archibald Skirving to illustrate how the medium was adopted in Scotland.

The exhibition runs from February 18 to June 10.
