nice staff and a collection to surprise. the Mackintosh drawings are fine and what you go for but the odd old master does not hurt and Whistler collection is good

Small gallery within teh grounds of Glasgow University well worth a visit to see an excellent cllection of paintings by Whistler and The Glasgow Boys. Close by you also have the Macintosh white room and the Huntarian Museum which are also worth visting.

Wonderful Glasgow university collection of art. Mixed variety and quality but some really special works including a small Chardin and some remarkable Whistlers.
