Hidden Treasures

Our man, The Chimney, has been out and about and has come across a couple of little treasures….

Those of you in the Glasgow area will know that Dali’s Christ of St John of the Cross has been rehung upstairs in Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum – it now has its own space and this is one painting exhibition that works very well. In the new space you’ll find more detailed information about the work as well as additional information and a piece of film about Dali. Have a look at our previous blogs on this work and let me know what you think of the new space.


Many of you probably think that you’ve seen everything upstairs in Kelvingrove. Well here is another treasure. Just off the French Room are three paintings, again in their own space. They are by Arthur Melville and, if you visited the Glasgow Boys exhibition, you will remember how wonderful his watercolours can be.

You don’t have to pick the best, you don’t have to nominate a second choice, you don’t even have to list them in order of preference. You just go along and enjoy them.

I look forward to hearing from you.
