The EEAG Reception Evening at Bourne Hall
The evening had great attendance and at one stage the
foyer was heaving with animated conversation.
Of course the wine flowed (a bit) and a couple of browsers and some
cards were sold as well.
Deputy Mayor Neil Dallon attended the reception with his
wife and gave a short speech and officially declared the reception open.
There was a “vote for your favourite picture” highlight
and there was a prize which was a picture donated by a member (me!) of Polesden
Lacey. This was won by an ex member of
the group, Mary Wood.
Many thanks to all Committee members who made the evening
possible and who tirelessly worked behind the scenes to make it an evening to

was way ahead of London when it came to art in the 19th Century. Throughout history Scotland always had a strong association
with France - innovation first came to Glasgow a long time before it went to London in those
days. Thereby, this group of talented men
worked together initially before going on to develop their own individual styles. One thing they had in common though (probably from working closely together) was a similar “scaffold” to their pictures; their horizontals and
verticals were perfectly placed making their pictures always balanced in their composition.
highlighted some of the artists that these boys were influenced
by and showed examples of their work: Jules Bastien-Lepage; Van Gogh; Monet; John Singer-Sergent; to name a few.
The Glasgow boys
ARTHUR MELVILLE 1855 – 1904
the Middle East (which was some expedition in those times) to paint. He used oils and watercolour and his work was
WILLIAM YORK McGREGOR 1855 – 1923
Travelled to France every summer to paint in oils. However his favourite subject was the Scottish landscape.
GEORGE HENRY 1858 – 1943
some time in Japan together with Hornel (oils) and was very influenced by Whistler
and Monet. His painting “Lady with Fan”
is well known. He also took on formal
portraits very successfully.
JOSEPH CRAWHALL 1861 – 1913
Morocco and Spain. Initially he painted
in oil but abandoned this medium for watercolour and painted stunning animal
and bird paintings making this his specialty.
JAMES GUTHRIE 1859 – 1930
highly qualified in art and belonged to many prestigious associations. He stayed within the Scottish borders, painting beautiful landscapes in oil. He also did portraits - Winston Churchill and
Henry Asquith were among his sitters.
EDWARD ARTHUR HORNELL 1864 – 1933
to Japan with George Henry and achieved the famous
painting entitled “The Druids” together with Henry.
JOHN QUINTON PRINGLE 1864 – 1925
classes with Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Was
very influenced by Jules Bastien-Lepage. He remained on home territory
(although visiting Normandy for a while) and painted Glasgow scenes and local people.
there we have seven artists – similar in age group (all born within ten years of
each other). They meet up and paint
together but time and perhaps fortune changes their destiny and they go their
separate ways but never forgetting their initial bonding – the love of art.
