Albert Gallery, Shandwick Place, Edinburgh
The Albert Gallery dates from 1876, erected as an institution to be styled the Albert Institute of the Fine Arts. It was designed for an art exhibition and artist's studios, with shops on the ground floor. The Institute was intended to promote the encouragement of fine art in general, and contemporary Scottish art in particular, by an autumn exhibition of water colours, a winter exhibition of painting and sculpture, and generally throughout the year by the exhibition and sale of works of art. Failing to succeed in these objects, it was converted in 1885 to the Army and Navy stores and in 1933 to the West End Restaurant, and is now offices.

The Bust of Prince Albert, Painting and Poetry was sculpted by Amelia Hill, the architect was Hamilton Beattie and it was designed in 1876 - 77. See supplemental for detail.
