This period also saw the development of The Glasgow Style, a distinctive approach to design which used stylised, linear and flowing motifs based on nature. It helped to boost GSA’s international reputation and to support the growing recognition of work by female artists and designers.
The opening of GSA’s new building in 1909, designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868-1928), is perhaps the most lasting legacy from this period.
This fabulous art work is typical of the period and will have been painted after Mackintosh opened the new building in 1909.
