Glasgow Girls

Glasgow Girls by Jude Burkhauser (Paperback ISBN 9781841951515) book cover

Available as Paperback

This is an essential art book, which looks at ‘The Glasgow Style’ from a female perspective

At the turn of the 20th century, Glasgow was the centre for an avant-garde movement of art and design innovation in Europe, which we now refer to as The Glasgow Style. While the “Glasgow Boys” group of painters has been widely written about, their female contemporaries have received far less attention. In this work, the editor redresses this imbalance, bringing together research from 18 scholars on the work of an astonishing number of female artists from this period.


“Glasgow Girls is likely to remain the last word on Glaswegian Art Nouveau for many years to come - the standard reference book on Glaswegian women artists of the period,”
the Sunday Times
