Architect: Simpson & Allen
Selected design in an architectural competition to design a museum and art gallery complex for Glasgow. The gallery was opened in 1901, as the Palace of Fine Arts for the Glasgow International Exhibition held in that year. It is built in a Spanish Baroque style in Dumfriesshire red sandstone, and includes an entire program of architectural sculpture by George Frampton, Francis Derwent Wood and other sculptors.
