The Glasgow Girls and Boys with James Knox, Director of the Fleming Collection
Wednesday 2nd December | 6pm (20 mins)
Click here to RSVP
The Gallery will be joined by Director of The Fleming Collection, James Knox to discuss his new book and recent exhibition ‘The Glasgow Girls and Boys’. The Glasgow Girls and Boys were a group of rebellious young artists who sprang to prominence in the early 1880s as radical painters of rural life in all its stark reality. This book tells their story from their early days painting in rural communities in Scotland and France, to their coming together in Glasgow as painters of modern life, to their years of international fame, hailed as some of the most innovative and experimental painters in Europe and America. For the first time, the pioneering women appear alongside their male counterparts, also revealing the challenges faced by women seeking to forge careers as artists. Numbering around twenty painters, the group includes John Lavery, Bessie MacNicol, James Guthrie, Joseph Crawhall, Edward Walton, Edward Hornel and Flora Macdonald Reid.
