Monuments and sculpture memorialised by new drawing collection
September 23 2020
Alan Dunlop has published a fresh batch of sketches drawn as part of an ever-lengthening diary of life under lockdown.
Architecture in Memoriam sees the architect shift focus towards monuments and sculpture, taking in sights such as The Bridge of Sighs at the Glasgow Necropolis and the Wallace Monument, Stirling.
Dunlop said: "This lockdown looks like continuing at some pace so I've started a new sketchbook Architecture in Memoriam, a collection of Scotland's greatest monument architecture and memorial sculpture.
"The Spean Bridge Commando and Royal Scots Greys monuments are commissions but fit the theme."
Previous genres include Architecture in Ruin, a snapshot of buildings in danger of being lost to time.
Main image: The "Bridge of Sighs" 1833. Created to cross the Molendinar Burn ( now Wishart Street ) from Cathedral Square to the Necropolis, the "city of the dead," Architect James Hamilton, the son of David Hamilton. Category A listed.
