Sleep is precious for gallery

An "incredibly rare" watercolour by Frances Macdonald MacNair has been bought for the nation for £60,000 at auction.

The National Galleries of Scotland announced the acquisition of Sleep, which will be on show at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art next autumn alongside The Mysterious Garden by Margaret Macdonald Mackintosh, which was acquired for the collection in 2011.
