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, one of the world’s best collections of the work of James McNeill Whistler, the largest single holding of the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh and The Mackintosh House.
