One of the most interesting exhibits that have been featured at the
Bourne Fine Art Gallery is the Glasgow Boys exhibit. This exhibit has
its
roots in the 1880’s, with the discovery of the ‘Le Rentree de Chevres’
painting, which was created by Sir John Lavery. The Glasgow Boys were
made
up artists Sir John Lavery, Arthur Melville, EA Hornel, EA Walton,
James
Paterson, Stuart Park, Sir James Guthrie and George Henry. Their
international success has made these artists and especially their work,
highly sought after, as they rose from a time when culture in Britain
and
other countries, were not very developed. The surfacing of the ‘Le
Rentree
de Chevres’ was extremely exciting, as the painting was last viewed in
1885,
and had made its way from Paris Salon to Norway. This amazing art
gallery in
Scotland is definitely worth the visit.
