Hunterian Art Gallery

Hunterian Art Gallery
In 1807, The Hunterian was the first museum in Britain with a gallery of paintings. Today, although most famous for our Whistler and Mackintosh collections, we have a wide range of outstanding works on show. The Hunterian Art Gallery, located on Hillhead Street beside the University Library, boasts one of the most distinguished public art collections in Scotland with works ranging from Rubens and Rembrandt to the Scottish Colourists and Glasgow Boys. It also features an outdoor sculpture courtyard with a small display of modern works by British artists, the world’s largest permanent display of the work of James McNeill Whistler, the largest single holding of the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh and The Mackintosh House.

Visiting the Hunterian Art Gallery

JANUARY TO MAY 2019

In 2018 we celebrated 300 years since the birth of our founder, Dr William Hunter, with a series of special exhibitions and events in the Hunterian Art Gallery. We are now working on a complete redisplay of the Gallery so our permanent art displays, including works by Whistler, the Scottish Colourists and Glasgow Boys, will be unavailable until May 2019. We apologise for any inconvenience.

The Art Gallery remains OPEN throughout and we have a number of special exhibitions available:

Rosengarten (until 20 January 2019)
Strange Foreign Bodies (until 10 February 2019)
The German Revolution: Expressionist Prints (1 March - 25 August 2019) 
Hand Drawn Action Packed (16 March - 3 June 2019)

The Mackintosh House and the Hunterian Museum are unaffected and also remain OPEN.

Just a short walk away from The Hunterian is Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum which houses one of Europe's great art collections and features galleries dedicated to the Glasgow Boys, Scottish Colourists and Mackintosh and the Glasgow Style.
