An exhibition celebrating the drawings of some of the UK’s top contemporary artists is due to open.
A Parliament of Lines will show the work of 15 artists, who were all either born in Scotland or studied here.
Works from them will be displayed at the City Art Centre in Edinburgh before going on an international tour.
All the artwork has been commissioned especially for the exhibition.
Artists involved include Charles Avery, Nathalie De Briey, Alan Johnston, and Euan Gray who also curated the show.
Mr Gray said: "Drawing has remained at the heart of Scottish art education since Edinburgh College of Art was formed initially as the first drawing school in Britain, over 250 years ago. In the 21st Century, drawing has a renewed importance in the art world.
"A Parliament of Lines aims to explore how drawing is being used in current contemporary art practice. The exhibition seeks to question what constitutes a drawing, at times exploring its boundary with painting, animation and photography."
David Patterson from the City of Edinburgh Council said "A Parliament of Lines promises to be a feast for all those who love drawing. The range of artists involved and the wealth of experience and creativity will certainly make it a must see for all lovers of contemporary art."
A Parliament of Lines will be on at the City Art Centre from May 5 to July 8, admission is free.
