We were sad to learn that Christine Thompson, the former
Publisher at the National Galleries of Scotland, died on Tuesday 24
October. She was a well-loved colleague and a great friend to many
at the National Galleries of Scotland and beyond.
Her funeral will be held at 11am on Thursday 2
November in the main chapel at Mortonhall, Edinburgh.
Christine joined the National Galleries in 1985 and worked in
Education and then in Publishing. She held a number of roles in the
Publishing Department and had been Publisher since 2012 until she
retired last November. She was closely involved in producing a
great number of books and catalogues across the years and the
exceptionally high quality of these publications is a tribute to
her skill and her dedication to excellence. She will be remembered
fondly across the Galleries.
