Details of a new art space which will form part of the £30 million redevelopment of a city gallery have been unveiled.
Aberdeen Art Gallery is due to open next year, following a major revamp project.
The first glimpses of the overhaul were given to the public at the start of the month – after work began on the building in 2015.
The new Aberdeen Art Gallery will include 21 gallery spaces in place of the previous 11 and will include a community gallery.
Details of one of the galleries has been announced and will have a Paradise Lost theme.
The gallery is named after the epic poem by John Milton, which tells the story of the fall of man.
One of the paintings which will feature in the gallery is artist John Minton’s Landscape and Windmill.
The oil on canvas artwork, which dates back to 1945, was purchased by the Aberdeen Art Gallery and Museums team with assistance from the National Fund for Acquisitions in 1977.
Landscape and Windmill dates back to the year of Minton’s first solo exhibition in London.
He was a prolific draughtsman and illustrator and also designed posters, wallpapers and scenography for the theatre.
An Aberdeen City Council spokesman said: “One of the larger first floor galleries, Paradise Lost, is named in reference to the poem by Milton.
“These powerful displays of drawings, paintings, prints and sculpture reflect on the impact of the First and Second World Wars and include works by Minton, Sir Stanley Spencer, Winifred Nicholson, Ian Fleming, Paul Nash and Gwen John.”
Cowdray Hall is also being upgraded as part of the plans.
The work being carried out will allow more space for international exhibitions to take place.
Outdoor terraces may also tempt visitors to take in views of the city while paying a visit to the see the artworks.
Recently, it emerged that Aberdeen City Council bosses invested almost £40,000 to boost donations for the revamp.
The local authority paid £39,000 to a consultancy firm in Stirling to help attract more fundraising opportunities to the development.
The gallery originally opened its doors to the public in the early 1880s.
The refurbishment is expected to be completed in late 2018 or early 2019.
