It's hard to imagine you won't find something to like at Edinburgh's National Galleries of Scotland. They're putting on three significant shows that highlight masterpieces of Impressionism, Realism and Surrealism:
 
Impressionist Gardens

Royal Scottish Academy, Edinburgh
July 31 - October 17, 2010

"It is the artist's garden, both cultivated and painted by the individual artist, which comes to the fore as an essentially Impressionist invention. For the Impressionists, the privacy of the artist's garden provided a place for dedicated investigation of the effects of colour, light and atmosphere on figures, flowers and plants."

"Impressionist Gardens will be a major international exhibition of over 90 works including loans from collections around the world, and will be the first ever to be devoted to this subject."
