  • > THE GLASGOW BOYS
21st July - 28 August 2017


In a reaction to the prescribed approach to the Victorian painting of the late nineteenth century, the Glasgow Boys sought a new and ‘modern’ style of painting, where their compositions showed a particular interest in rural realism, in working out-of-doors, and in French-inspired tonal and compositional techniques.

This exhibition brings together works by James Paterson, Arthur Melville, SIr James Guthrie, James Whitelaw Hamilton, Edward Arthur Walton, John Quinton Pringle, Harrington Mann, and Constance Walton.
