An art ex­hi­bi­tion has been launched at Mon­trose Mu­seum and Art Gallery.

“Land­marks” has brought to­gether peo­ple, land and cul­ture by show­cas­ing iconic por­traits of Scot­tish po­ets by Alexan­der Mof­fat and Ruth Ni­col’s paint­ings of the land­scapes that in­flu­enced and in­spired these po­ets.

Both artists col­lab­o­rated with the poet and pro­fes­sor of Scot­tish lit­er­a­ture, Alan Ri­ach, who also launched his new book.

Pic­ture: Dougie Ni­col­son.
