The Glasgow Boys 1870-1910

21 July - 28 August 2017 Edinburgh

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