Art History Festival 2023
An exploration of paintings that revolutionised British art with their radical colour theory and bold application. This free tour, led by Curator of British Art Dr Jo Meacock, will encompass aesthetes like James McNeill Whistler and Albert Moore, Pre-Raphaelites D. G. Rossetti and Edward Burne-Jones, Glasgow Boy E. A. Hornel, Scottish Colourist F. C. B. Cadell, 20th-century greats Joan Eardley and Frank Auerbach and contemporary Glasgow artist and musician Victoria Morton. For each colour was a means to express their unique ideas and perception of the world, their works often shocking their contemporaries with their bold conception.
This is an in-person tour. Spaces are on a first come, first served basis. Meet at the information desk in the Main Hall 5 minutes prior to the tour start time to secure your space.
