Biographical history

Archival history

Custodial history

The majority of items originate from The Glasgow School of Art. A number of the earliest pieces in the collection (from the late 19th century onwards) were purchased by the School as important teaching aids. Later examples were added to the collection by means of acquiring work from graduating students. Items are generally bequeathed or donated to the School or purchased by the School. Work is continually being added to this collection, chiefly through gift, donation and bequest, and usually from former students, former staff of the School or their descendants.
