Glasgow Boys and Girls
12 November 2010
In the Reynolds Room, a John Madejski Fine Room
Late nineteenth-century Glasgow, the 'Second City of the British Empire', was booming with industrial and creative energy. Architects, artists, and craftspersons either advanced existing traditions or made new art for the new century. Professor Tony Jones, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, puts the Glasgow Boys paintings into context, and introduces the artists and the personalities of the period, such as Miss Cranston and her 'Art Tea Rooms', and 'Fra' Newberry, who commissioned Charles Rennie Mackintosh to build the revolutionary Glasgow School of Art.
