Notes:
"This exhibition honours the great philosopher, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, whose writings continue to inspire one of the most distinguished of Scottish artists, Ian Hamilton Finlay. Through his photographic meditations upon the garden, as understood by these companions in thought and sensibility ... Robin Gillanders recalls to our minds the animated nature of our connections - Scotland and France."--Sir Timothy Clifford.
