GOYA'S "Los Desastres de la Guerra", one man's nightmare of the Napoleonic invasion of Spain, gives the title to Disasters of War: Callot, Goya, Dix, the touring exhibition of prints from the British Museum. Sixty-nine of Goya's 82 prints are on show, along with Jacques Callot's "Miseries of War", and Otto Dix's vision of life in the trenches, "War", which includes the etching Stormtroops advance under gas (detail, above).

The Pier Arts Centre at Stromness on Orkney is one of the most surprising and appealing galleries in the country. Permanent home to Margaret Gardiner's collection of English modernist work of the Thirties and Forties, it also hosts excellent temporary exhibitions, few better than the current show, Green Waters, a poetic collaboration between Ian Hamilton Finlay, Ian Stephen and Graham Rich.
