This summer the Royal Scottish Academy will present Leon Morrocco: Long Road Home.

Timed to coincide with the artist’s 80th birthday, the exhibition will position Leon Morrocco RSA as one of the most important Scottish painters of his generation. 

 

Although Morrocco was born in Edinburgh he has not lived in Scotland since 1979. This substantial survey exhibition charts the ‘long road home’ to showing in the Scottish capital this summer. Morrocco is one of the RSA’s longest standing members, having been elected an Associate of the Academy in 1971 at the age of 29.

 

Highlighting lesser-known aspects of Morrocco’s long career, the exhibition will provide an insightful look at the practice of this celebrated, influential artist.
