The redisplay of the Hunterian Art Gallery in Glasgow opens to the public on Saturday 1st April, with the bonus of free admission, when visitors can see over 200 artworks spanning seven centuries in the revamped main gallery. Many of the works have never been on show before, while others have been hidden from view for a number of years. These include Sea Devil’s Watchtower (1960) by Alan Davie, A Paris Street by the Scottish Colourist S J Peploe and The Great Honey Coloured Moon (c.1911) by ‘Glasgow Girl’ Jessie Marion King. Artworks which have undergone conservation, giving them a new lease of life, include Margaret Macdonald Mackintosh’s stunning gesso panel The White Rose and the Red Rose (pictured).

The Hunterian is home to the University of Glasgow’s extensive art collection, which includes paintings of international importance, the largest print collection in Scotland, a growing contemporary art collection and an outdoor sculpture courtyard.
