Work by Gaelic-speaking artists and artists responding to the culture of the Gàidhealtachd is an important part of the art of Scotland.

This book aims to reverse that position. It has its origin in a research collaboration between the Visual Research Centre, Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design (University of Dundee) and Sabhal Mòr Ostaig (University of the Highlands and Islands) which led to a major exhibition, Uinneag dhan Àird an Iar: Ath-Lorg Ealain na Gàidhealtachd / Window to the West: The Rediscovery of Highland Art, held at the City Art Centre in Edinburgh in the winter months of 2010-11.

Invaluable support has been given by the Arts and Humanities Research Council; PF Charitable Trust; Bòrd na Gàidhlig; the National Galleries of Scotland; the Carnegie Trust for the Universities of Scotland; the Royal Scottish Academy; An Lanntair, Stornoway; the Scottish Society for Art History; the City Art Centre, Edinburgh; the Fleming Collection, London; the Open University in Scotland; the University of Edinburgh and The Gaelic Books Council.
