dc.descriptionDetail, cupola on variant of model "Jonquille" (1425 sq. ft.); Anderson was the dominant figure in Scottish architecture during the late Victorian and Edwardian periods. He was known for his mastery of the archaeologically accurate Gothic style popularized in England by the Ecclesiological Society. This secular building drew on inspiration from the Doges Palace in Venice for its treatment of a rectangular Gothic palace. The red sandstone was quarried from Corsehill in Dumfriesshire; overall there is a combination of Arts and Crafts and 13th-century Gothic influences. The Edinburgh gallery the first in the world to be purpose built as a portrait gallery (London's National Portrait Gallery opened in 1886). The building was closed during renovations 2009-2011.
