"Wonderful Revelations": Scottish Art at the Venice Biennale and the Strategies of Innovation and Reputation, 1897-1899

Marie Tavinor


This article examines the introduction of two waves of Scottish artists at the newly-founded Venice Biennale in 1897 and 1899 and considers how the Venetian venture negotiated the need to innovate with the imperative to build up its own reputation. Using hitherto unpublished archival material, it touches upon a number of issues regarding marketing practices, art market flows and the consumption of art at the international level.
