The Burrell Collection can be seen at home and abroad at the following venues.
Burrell at Kelvingrove: Tapestries
During his lifetime Sir William Burrell (1861–1958) collected over 200 tapestries. Including majestic tapestries commissioned by kings, princes and bishops and smaller domestic tapestries woven for the emerging wealthy merchant classes, this exhibition showcases nine works from the 14 – 17 centuries. Until Spring 2018 at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum.
Drawn in Colour: Degas at the Burrell Collection
Commemorating the centenary of the artist’s death, twenty works by Edgar Degas from the Burrell Collection are on show at the National Gallery, London. This is the first time many of the works are being seen outside Glasgow since they were acquired early in the 20th century by Burrell. Until April 2018 at The National Gallery, London.
This autumn, the Rijksmuseum will present a large exhibition of works by the romantic bohemian Matthijs Maris. Including 75 paintings, drawings, etchings and craftwork, due to the unique loans from the Burrell Collection, this is the first- ever comprehensive overview of the artist’s work and the first time the works have travelled overseas since they were acquired by Burrell. Until 7 January 2018 at The Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam.
