The Fergusson Gallery is located in Marshall Place, Perth, (See Map) opposite the South Inch and devoted to the artistic work of the Scottish colourist painter John Duncan Fergusson (1874-1961). The gallery houses the largest collection of his works in the world.
The Gallery opened in 1992, occupies an A-listed neo-classical former waterworks designed in 1832 in the style of a Roman Doric Temple by Adam Anderson (1780 - 1846), the Rector of Perth Academy. Fresh water supplying the town was pumped by steam engine from filtration beds on Moncrieffe Island. The building was nearly demolished in the 1960s, but fortunately was converted to a tourist information centre in 1972 before taking on its current purpose.
