Go to GOMA
But there was something else to recommend. There is an exhibition of art work that is owned by the BBC and used to be hung in their old premises on Queen Margaret Drive. The artists on show include some of the best known painters from the 1980’s and 90’s, as well as less well known but fascinating work. The focus is on the figurative and it does appear that the collection was put together with some thought and taste. There are works by Peter Howson, Ken Currie, Will Maclean, Elspeth Lamb and a quite beautiful self portrait by Alison Watt.
It’s a terrific snapshot of Scottish painting from the end of the last century and always worth your time if you’re in Glasgow city centre and find you have 40 minutes to spare .
