Before Mackintosh - Daniel Cottier, William Leiper and the "First Glasgow School"
23rd March 2011, Oran Mor, Glasgow
Please note: There has been a change to the advertised programme and it will now be a half day seminar. Please call 0131 668 8683 for more details.
A half day seminar which sets the work of Daniel Cottier in context and explores his influence on contemporaries in Scotland and abroad.
Charles Rennie Mackintosh, one of Scotlands best known architects,
is widely recognised as one of the most influential designers of his generation. However, a less recognised
figure emerged in Glasgow decades earlier who was to have a profound effect not only on Scottish and
international contemporaries, but also on the generations that followed.
Cottier worked closely with contemporaries such as William Leiper, predominantly as a stained glass
artist, decorator and furniture designer during the second half of the 19th Century. Though his work
was enormously influential internationally he has been until now a little-known figure in Scotland.
This one-day seminar sets the work of Daniel Cottier in context and explores his influence on contemporaries
in Scotland and abroad.
The official launch of the accompanying Historic Scotland publication Cottiers
in Context Daniel Cottier, William Leiper and Dowanhill Church, Glasgow will take place at Dowanhill
Church after the seminar
The delegate fee for the day is just £30 (including refreshments and lunch), students
