A group of primarily Scottish artists (mainly William York Macgregor, Joseph Crawhall, George Henry, Edward Atkinson Hornel, Sir John Lavery and Arthur Melville) they painted in a number of different styles, and were active around the turn of the 20th Century. The Glasgow Boys are defined by their rejection of classic Victorian painting; inspired by the luminous techniques of James McNeil Whistler they harnessed Impressionistic brushwork and livid realism in their work, trying new methods and everyday settings to create stunning works of art. With over 100 images, and broad introduction this is a fine addition to Flame Tree's the ever increasing series on painting and illustration, Masterpieces of Art.
