Glascow school


A group of artists from Scotland, primarily landscape painters, who were active in the late 19th Century, they rejected prevalent tenets of Academic painting and painted with French influences in the more modernist, Barbizon style of 'en plein air' or painting in the open air. Their subjects were Scottish, such as rather conventional scenes of the countryside or wildlife in marshes, etc. The Glascow School was England's late 19th-century contribution to western art, but the movement peaked after their exhibition in 1890 at the Grosvenor Gallery in London.
