The origins of the Scottish national collection are connected to the Royal Institution for the Diffusion of the Fine Arts in Scotland, founded in 1819. It began acquiring paintings and in 1828 the Royal Institution building opened on The Mound. In 1826 a group of artists founded the Scottish Academy as an offshoot of the Royal Institution, and in 1838 that new and separate entity eventually became the Royal Scottish Academy (RSA). A key aim of the RSA was to assemble a collection, and in 1835 it rented exhibition space inside the Royal Institution building.
The gallery exhibits Scotland’s most important collection of paintings and sculpture. Works range from the Renaissance to post-impressionism, while later collections are displayed in a separate museum.
