Modern Art Two is most renowned for its huge collection of works by local Edinburgh artist Sir Eduardo Paolozzi, including a recreation of his home studio and his 7.3-meter tall Vulcan sculpture that forms the centerpiece of the museum café. Other notable works include an extensive collection of Dada and Surrealist art, mostly taken from the private collections of Sir Roland Penrose and Mrs Gabrielle Keiller; Richard Wright’s large-scale art installation The Stairwell Project; and a sizable number of works by Scottish artists like Peploe, Fergusson, Gillies and Redpath. Also at Modern Two is the Gabrielle Keiller library, a world-class archive of materials relating to 20th and 21st century artists, including papers, drawings, sketchbooks, photographs and more.
