Christine Thompson

31 October 2017

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.
