The Prestoungrange Ceiling

The Prestoungrange Gothenburg, James Fewell Bar
by Andrew Crummy

The original Prestongrange painted timber ceiling dates back to 1581 believed to be the earliest example of a Renaissance painted ceiling in Scotland. It has received a contemporary interpretation on the ceiling of the James Fewell Bar. Andrew Crummy has incorporated a number of current portraits in the work, as well as recognisable images from the original. The original ceiling is open to viewing at Merchiston Tower, Edinburgh by appointment only.
