During the 18th to 20th centuries Glasgow was alight with innovation as we will discover on this cultural tour which considers the art, architecture, crafts, collectors and the increasingly affluent consumers of the great industrial city.
• Follow the work of key figures including Robert Adam, Alexander ‘Greek’ Thomson, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, and the pioneer obstetrician and collector, William Hunter, founder of the Hunterian Museum.
• Take a trip to the Isle of Bute for Mount Stuart, one of the most lavish and individual late Victorian houses in Scotland.
• Travel with art historian Evelyn Silber, formerly Director of the Hunterian Museum and Chair of The Mackintosh Society.
