a group of artists from Glasgow, Scotland, who became known at the end of the 19th century (c. 1870-1895) for a new style of painting which was less traditional than the style of the time. Their paintings were often of ordinary people and outdoor scenes. The group included the artists Joseph Crawhill (1861-1913), Sir James Guthrie (1859-1930), George Henry (1858-1943) and E.A.Hornel (1864-1933).
