Before & After The Four

Before & After The Four
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

The Fund is being established to promote the work of the many artists and designers that lived and worked in Glasgow between 1850 and 1920 and who have been overshadowed to some degree by the outstanding work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh and his circle – the Four.

The Fund, once established, will devote resources to saving and restoring artworks, promoting exhibitions and commissioning publications that will contribute to a broader perspective on Glasgow’s flowering of artistic talent in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

The first project will be to pay for the restoration of perhaps the finest stained glass window in the city – the great south window in Lansdowne Church by Alf Webster who was killed at Ypres aged 29, two years after its creation.

It is now in urgent need of repair and must be taken down and stored safely to avoid progressive collapse.

In 2006 the Pilgrim Trust provided a grant to Four Acres Charitable Trust to pay for the window to be taken down by professional conservators. Money is needed to pay for its conservation and reinstatement and this will be the first project for the new Fund to pursue.
