Taking shelter in the Burrell Collection for a while I had a wander round the exhibitions. Despite the miserable weather the light still shone through the stain glass windows beautifully. The museum is one of my favourite buildings in Glasgow. The whole space is specifically designed to harmonise with the outside and to be flexible to the current displays. Some are even built into the space so you're not just looking at ancient carvings you are walking through them, truly living in them just for a moment.
The Burrell Collection houses a unique collection of over 8,000 objects gifted to Glasgow by Sir William Burrell in 1944. Focusing on late medieval and early Renaissance Europe, it also contains important examples of Chinese and Islamic art, French Paintings and Ancient Civilisations. It includes work by major artists including Rodin, Degas and Cézanne.
