Product Description
The Glasgow Boys and Girls: Painting in Scotland Book of Postcards
As the nineteenth century steamed implacably toward the twentieth, a generation of Scottish artists stood in the bow, never so much as glancing over their shoulders. Rather than kowtow to Edinburgh’s dominant Royal Scottish Academy, these painters embraced a series of modern trends emerging from France and England. The men adopted the rural themes of France’s Barbizon school and the emotional restraint of local painters devoted to simplicity and realism; the women drew on the wiry curves of Art Nouveau and the functional honesty of Arts and Crafts.

It was in 1890 that London’s Grosvenor Gallery, long a champion of modern trends, exhibited paintings by several Scottish artists whom the critics dubbed “the Glasgow school”; the artists, several of whom did not live in Glasgow, preferred to be known as “the Boys.”

Appearing a bit later than their male counterparts, the Glasgow Girls chose a more decorative path. Several of them studied at the Glasgow School of Art during the tenure of Francis H. Newbury, an advocate of the Arts and Crafts movement who cultivated his students’ individuality. Rather than limit themselves to painting, these women designed jewelry, fabrics, posters, and illustrated books. Many of their designs and drawings exhibit a debt to continental Art Nouveau.
