I walked from the Riverside Museum to Kelvingrove, though I could have hopped on the bus again. The Art Gallery and Museum is a work of art in itself:
The entrance hall was even noisier than Riverside, and for the same reason, compounded by the fact it is a café. It reminded me strongly of the Bristol City Museum which uses its similar entrance hall for a similar purpose.
I had never heard of the Glasgow Boys, but was delighted to make their acquaintance in a gallery all of their own. Here is some of their work which particularly caught my eye. (Photography is permitted in the gallery’s own collections.)
Moving on, I was amused to see a poster about the Utility Furniture promoted during World War 2. My parents married in 1939 and furnished their first home on this. I still have the bookcase featured back left!
Here are some more works in the Gallery which particularly pleased me.
The label says ‘Pot of Life, 2005, designed by Lucky Oboh,’ but I can’t make who cast it.
This one is apparently a favourite with many visitors.
