This evening, I am focusing on one of Scotland’s top cultural and learning establishments, namely the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum (“Kelvingrove”).

Kelvingrove was incepted in late Victorian times when Glasgow was at its commercial peak as the ‘Second City of the (British) Empire.

Today, Kelvingrove has a wide range of exhibits and themes which includes:

  • Scottish Art
  • Design
  • Charles Rennie Mackintosh and the Glasgow Style
  • Ancient Egypt
  • Creatures of the past.
  • Scotland’s Wildlife.
  • Dutch Art
  • Italian Art
  • French Art
  • Scotland’s First People
  • Cultural Survival.

Here also can be viewed the masterpiece Christ of St. John of the Cross by Salvador Dali (1951).
