The late nineteenth century saw an explosion of Scottish artists. This period saw the birth of the Glasgow Boys, a group of artists who took their cues from the Impressionists and Post-Impressionists but focused on scenes of life in Glasgow. Their world travels also influenced their work. Leading members of the group include James Paterson and William York Macgregor. These artists’ work has inspired audiences throughout history.

Christie’s sale of Hubert de Givenchy collection
This week marks the 70th anniversary of the debut of Givenchy’s haute couture collection. The collection, which dates back to 1952, was a major international success. In honor of this occasion, Christie’s will offer 1,200 lots from the Givenchy estate. Among the works up for sale are some of the designer’s most valuable and most beautiful paintings, sculptures, and furnishings. In addition to this, the collection will also feature works of art.
The Hubert de Givenchy collection represents a rare glimpse into the life of one of the world’s most influential couturiers. Givenchy lived in two homes: the Chateau du Jonchet in Paris and a manor in Palm Beach. In addition to his main home, the designer also maintained a residence in Hong Kong. The Hubert de Givenchy collection is truly a unique opportunity to purchase a piece of French haute couture.
Tate’s Tracking Arts Learning and Engagement project
The Tracking Arts Learning and Engagement project, or TALE, was a recent study that examined arts education in English secondary schools over a five-year period. The research was conducted with the help of the RSC, Tate and the University of Nottingham, and involved collaboration across 30 schools with 63 teachers and 6,000 students. The report provides valuable guidance for schools looking to implement arts education into their curricula.
