The work of Philip Webb
Dates:07/05/2015-07/05/2015

This lecture is being offered as a contribution to the centenary of the death of Philip Webb (1831-1915), architect of William Morris’s Red House, the National Trust’s Standen, and a whole group of quietly influential houses. He had one important Scottish client, the owners of the Arisaig Estate, and in the North of England he was responsible for major works for the family of the industrialist, Sir Isaac Lowthian Bell, around Northallerton, and for George Howard, 9th Earl of Carlisle, painter and collector as well as landowner, for whom he did work on the Naworth Castle and Castle Howard estates. Above all, however, he partnered William Morris in the founding of the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings and, while Morris acted as the spokesman, Webb worked out how to repair old buildings reliably and with as little damage to their authenticity as possible.

Dr. Peter Burman is an architectural historian who has been studying Webb for many years, organised the only conference ever held on Webb and his work, and has produced two major articles on him with more in preparation. He sees Webb as a understated but nevertheless major figure both in the early development of the British Arts & Crafts Movement and in the early history of a responsible British ‘heritage movement’. He is a Guardian of the SPAB and in Scotland he is currently chairman of the Falkland Stewardship Trust, whose responsibilities include a major 19th century country house, and a trustee and Archivist of Hopetoun House. He acts as an arts and heritage consultant across a spectrum of special places.

This is part of the Gilded Glasgow Project.

Glasgow
Glasgow’s Gilded Age
Dates:08/05/2015-08/05/2015

The conference will highlight those Glasgow designers who originally established the city's reputation at the time of the Aesthetic Movement and Mark Twain’s so called Gilded Age. Glasgow’s international reputation for design and manufacture sprang forth from the city's industries, as well as its educational institutions, and its influence spread across the globe through trade. This laid the foundation for Glasgow’s inimitable ‘style’.

We want to invite our guests on a unique sensory experience, considering both the glamour and the grit of industrial Glasgow. Our speakers will be discussing a wide range of topics, including; the interiors of Glasgow’s finest buildings, architectural ornament and stained glass within the city, and the movers and shakers of both the artistic and industrial spheres.

Other speakers include:

Prof. John Hume OBE, BSc ARCST, Hon FRIAS, FSA Scot; Chairman of the Royal Commission of Ancient and Historic Monuments, Patron of GCHT, and life-long supporter of Glasgow’s industrial and artistic heritage, will be speaking about the industries and the individuals who produced or commissioned art in Glasgow throughout the period.

He acts as an arts and heritage consultant across a spectrum of special places. Peter Burman will Chair the afternoon session of the conference. We believe that it is crucial to the promotion of Glasgow as a world city, and that through it we will be celebrating its vibrant artistic and industrial history, encouraging academic study of the period of this ‘gilded age’, and promoting Glasgow as a place for cultural and historic tourism.

Au temps de Klimt, la Sécession à Vienne
Dates:22/05/2015-22/05/2015

Cette exposition évoque un aspect essentiel de l'Art nouveau qui s'est développé à Vienne au début du XXème siècle sous le nom de Sécession. Le rôle de Gustav Klimt dans l'éclosion de ce mouvement est majeur. Le talent et le brio de cet artiste, de ses débuts précoces à ses excès décoratifs où les dorures et l'expressionnisme naissant dominent, sont le socle d'une période nouvelle qui s'est épanouie à Vienne au tournant du siècle.
