Glasgow School of Art

View artworks

Glasgow School of Art has been teaching the visual arts since 1845. For most of its history the School has been headed by practising artists, and has a stronger and more long standing tradition than almost any other British school of art of employing practitioners on its staff. One of the earliest of these was the Glasgow sculptor John Mossman, who was followed by other significant practitioners in the medium such as Albert Hodge, George Frampton and William Reid Dick.

Also in its earlier history the School was run by the painter Fra H Newbery, who during a long exhibiting career, was involved with the first Venice Biennales. Other practitioners who taught drawing and painting were, Thomas Corsan Morton, a member of the Glasgow Boys, the internationally important Belgian Symbolist Jean Delville, the portraitist Maurice Greiffenhagen R.A., the notable artist and craftsman, Robert Anning Bell, the symbolist and tempera painter Frederick Cayley Robinson, and others, such as David Forrester Wilson, Gilbert Spencer, David Donaldson, and James A. Robertson.

The School has maintained its record of employing practitioners as teachers into the twenty-first century. More recent staff members and artists in residence have included, Thomas Joshua Cooper, Ken Currie, Steven Campbell, and Douglas Gordon. Among artists currently teaching at Glasgow School of Art are Christine Borland, Callum Innes, Stephanie Smith, Edward Stewart and Julie Roberts and it is some of their work which is featured on this database.
