The exhibition catalogue for a show of the work of the 'Two Roberts' at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh in 2014. Robert Colquhoun and Robert MacBryde were closely linked artistically and emotionally. They were popular figures in the art world during the 1940s, creating paintings and prints, and designing sets for the theatre. The catalogue illustrates many of their works and discusses their often-troubled lives. From the library of theatre designer David Collis, with his dated signature in pencil to half-title.
