Five years ago the home of Glasgow’s most celebrated art collection closed to the public for a £68 million makeover. Now the finishing touches are being made to the Burrell Collection ahead of its grand unveiling in March in Pollok Country Park on 29th March. The project will increase the amount of available space by more than a third, to showcase the thousands of works collected by the Glasgow shipping magnate Sir William Burrell, who donated his collection of mediaeval, Islamic, Chinese, Egyptian and French Impressionist art treasures to the city in 1944.
