Sophisticated, luxurious and incredibly detailed enamel paintings of the masters exhibited in Scotland for the first time.

The rediscovery of the old masters" includes two paintings stored in the National gairah Scotland, which has long inspired the Show. This "Quarrel of Oberon and Titania" (1949) Joseph Noel Paton and "the Allegory of melancholy" (1528) by Lucas Cranach, who for 20 years has been in the Museum for long-term lease. Two years ago, Shaw wrote a free version of the unusual fabulous paintings by Paton, and this year he finished his interpretation of the masterpiece of Cranach.
