Friends of Hospitalfield Trip: Little Sparta

1:30pm-3:30pm, 14 June 2018

Ian Hamilton Finlay (1925 – 2006) was an artist best known for his work in sculpture and poetry whose works are held in major collections and more than fifty of his installations can be seen in public places.

Set in the Pentland Hills near Edinburgh, Little Sparta is Ian Hamilton Finlay’s greatest work of art. Imbued with a high idea content, the garden is created from the artistic fusion of poetic and sculptural elements with those of the natural landscape which is shaped and changed to become an inherent part of the concepts realised at Little Sparta.

Join the Friends of Hospitalfield for a memorable and absorbing visit to this artists garden. The trip will directly follow the Friends of Hospitalfield Collection Visit to the home of Susanna Beaumont in Edinburgh.

Travel details to be confirmed, it is likely that we will be able to travel by minibus departing from and returning to Hospitalfield
