This is one of a series of lectures on the Glasgow Boys and Girls by Prof Maria Chester, which is being delivered online. No previous knowledge is assumed.

The Glasgow Boys belong to the Glasgow School movement, and so did the Glasgow Girls. From 1880 to 1920, Glasgow also witnessed major art movements including Arts & Crafts, Art Nouveau, Art Deco and the “Modernists”. The role of women within these modernist movements has been largely neglected. Margaret and Frances MacDonald, Jessie Newbery, Ann Macbeth and Jessie M. King were among those women who met at the Glasgow School of Art and whose roles in these art movements are currently being reassessed.
