The Glasgow Boys were true artistic pioneers pursuing naturalist subject matter with strong, clean fresh colours. They absorbed foreign influences and went on to develop a symbolist style with an emphasis on patten and design. This brought Scottish art to the forefront of the European avant-garde.

Pioneering Painters: The Glasgow Boys is a definitive catalogue looking at The Glasgow Boys’ body of work from 1880 until 1900 when it was at its most innovative and exciting. Celebrating and re-examining the Boys' vital contribution to the history of Scottish art, this book brings together all the major pictures accompanied by insightful commentaries by Roget Billcliffe, Kenneth McConkey, Mark O'Neill, Hugh Stevenson and Jean Walsh.
