How Glasgow flourished

How Glasgow Flourished

I am grateful to Deirdre Grieve for alerting me to a new exhibition at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, “How Glasgow Flourished, 1714–1837“, which examines that city’s financial success during the Georgian era.

The exhibition, which runs until 17 August, includes a number of references to William Macintosh’s successful industrialist brother, George. Having not seen the oil painting  of George in the flesh (as it were), I hope to be able to visit the exhibition during its current run.
