Glasgow Boys Take on London

Mark your calendars and get your Art Nouveau on in London. The Royal Academy will be participating in an exhibition of the work of the Glasgow Boys, sponsored by Culture and Sport Glasgow.

The Glasgow boys were group of 25 artists including Joseph Crawhall, Sir James Guthrie, and E.A. Walton who gained some notoriety in the late 19th century for their post-impressionistic works. A collection of 75 works, including some pieces from private collections, will be brought to London. CS Glasgow is hoping this will encourage tourists to visit the city. You can see the full collection of 150 paintings in the city that spawned them at the Kelvingrove Gallery between April and August 2010 before the show comes to London in September for the rest of the year.
