The Scottish National Gallery has announced two important acquisitions to the national collection.

Entrance to the Cuiraing, Skye (1873) by Waller Hugh Paton has been purchased and Portrait of Jean-François Regnault (1815) by Jean-Baptiste, baron Regnault has been acquired for the nation thanks to a private donor.

Michael Clarke, director of the Scottish National Gallery, said; “It is vitally important that we continue to add significant works, both Scottish and European, to this wonderful and very distinctive collection.”
