Wednesday Women …

November 13, 2013

 While the the avant garde movement was going on in Russia. Europe and the United States so too in Glasgow, Scotland was there an art movement going on.  (1895-1920)

There were several female artists who were central to its development; Margaret and Frances Macdonald, Jessie Newbery, Ann Macbeth and Jessie M King. Each of this group attended Glasgow School of Art.

During that the Glasgow Boys, a group of painters, were becoming known in the Arts and Crafts, Art Nouveau, Art Deco and the Modern Movement and well documented then and since.  The role of women within these movements was largely neglected.   

This oversight has been addressed in the Glasgow Girls ; women in art and design 1880-1920 edited by Jude Burkhauser.
