Much has been written about the famous Glasgow School of Art building, designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, but very little has been said about the School itself. To celebrate its 150th anniversary, former student and lecturer Hugh Ferguson here relates the history of the School from its earliest days as a Government School of Design in Ingram Street to its present form in the Mackintosh building on Renfrew Street. It is a story full of extraordinary individuals who shaped the character and spirit of the School and the artists who studied there. Many of the country's most celebrated painters were trained at Glasgow - Cadell, Lavery, J.D. Ferguson, Bessie MacNicol, Jessie M. King, the MacDonald sisters, Colquhoun, MacBryde, Eardley, D.Y. Cameron and Muirhead Bone. But painting is not solely responsible for GSA's reputation: graphics, architecture, product design and the applied arts are all areas in which the School continues to excel and for which its students have won international acclaim. With a look towards the future by the present director, Dugald Cameron, and a wide variety of personal views of the School from eminent former students, such as McIntosh Patrick, Ken Currie, Cordelia Oliver, Robbie Coltrane and John McNeece, this book reveals not only the complete history, but also the spirit of this institution.
