In Customer Experiences with Soul Maria and I write about the artwork of The Glasgow Boys, an informal group of young artists that emerged in the nineteenth century. Two members of the group which we particularly focus on are George Henry (1858-1943) and Edward Atkinson Hornel (1864-1933), writing about their dramatic painting The Druids: Bringing in the Mistletoe.

The Druids: Bringing in the Mistletoe

Last year I had the opportunity to record this video in which I introduce the painting The Druids: Bringing in the Mistletoe by George Henry (1858–1943) and Edward Atkinson Hornel (1864–1933). This is my favourite painting and one which we write about in Customer Experiences with Soul when discussing beauty and design.

This year while back in the UK Maria and I visited The Kelvingrove art gallery and museum in Glasgow which is home to the permanent collection of The Glasgow Boys. This year there were a number of paintings by Henry and Hornel which I had not seen before, and so I thought I would take this opportunity to show you more of their incredible works of art.
