Giving delight to the citizen: Muirhead Bone’s etchings of the 1901 Glasgow International Exhibition

Giving delight to the citizen: Muirhead Bone’s etchings of the 1901 Glasgow International Exhibition

Date: Tuesday 28 June 2016
Time: 13:00 - 13:15
Venue: The Hunterian Art Gallery
Speaker: Isobel MacDonald

This is a 15 minute informal talk as a part of The Hunterian Insight Talk series. The talk will contextualise my Hunterian Associate Programme project entitled ‘1901 Exhibition Etchings’, which uses the 28 etchings by Muirhead Bone (1876-1953) found in The Hunterian’s print collection to form an online exhibition. By questioning the purpose behind the 1901 GIE this talk hopes to create a context within which Bone’s etchings can be understood.
