James Knox and Guy Peploe in conversation, 22/08/2019

Amid fierce competition from other Festival events, the creme de la creme of Edinburgh's art scene gathered to celebrate the launch of The Scottish Colourists and to hear Fleming Collection Director James Knox in conversation with The Scottish Gallery's Guy Peploe.
