7 People in artist grouping: Glasgow Style

Flourishing from the late 19th-early 20th centuries, Glasgow Style was represented by a number of artists groups, who came together in this period of economic prosperity, to influence the future of modern art through their distinctive work in the Art Nouveau genre. 'The Four', or 'Spook School' as they were also known, brought Glasgow to the attention of the Art world, inspiring a revival of the earlier Celtic and Arts and Crafts movements, started by William Morris. Members of 'The Four', artists and sisters Margaret and Frances MacDonald also belonged to a collective called 'The Glasgow Girls', which along with 'The Four' and 'The Glasgow Boys' made major contributions to expanding Glasgow as a centre of art. The Glasgow Boys in particular developed the genres of realism and naturalism with their works created on-site, depicting Glasgow's land and people.
