Talbot Rice Arts Centre, Edinburgh (0131-650 2211) to 10 Sept
That Danish art did not end with the well-known Skagen landscape school of the 1880s is evinced by a fascinating exhibition. Particularly revealing are Jens Willumsen's Fauvist nudes, the minimalism of Soren Jensen and Elisabeth Toubro and, of course, the faux-primitif paintings of Asger Jorn.
Edinburgh City Art Centre (0131-529 3993) to 30 Sept
One of the West Country's most neglected abstractionists, George Dannatt, is given a deserving outing from this Saturday. Influenced by John Wells and Naum Gabo, Dannatt, 80 this year, makes engaging Nicholson-esque paintings with a resonance that betrays his erstwhile career as a music critic.
Book Gallery St Ives (01736 793545) to 29 Sept
