Paintings of Glasgow: 8 of the all-time best paintings made in Glasgow or by Glaswegian artists

Glasgow as a city fostered many talented artists - these are eight of our favourite paintings made in Glasgow

Glaswegians truly are a talented bunch - we've got some of the best comedians, actors, and artists in Scotland - today we wanted to take a look at the best artists Glasgow has to offer.

That's right, today we're collating our favourite Glasgow paintings, the absolute best paintings either made in Glasgow, or by a Glaswegian artist - or in some cases, a West coast artist who studied and was heavily influenced by the Glasgow Style.

As industrial a city as we were, we always had a space for the arts - it was something Glasgow never overlooked - and it's why to this day we have one of the most prestigious art institutions in Britain, none other than the Glasgow School of Art.

We love to champion our artists here in Glasgow too - whether they be the likes of architectural great Charles Rennie Mackintosh or the Big Yin himself, Billy Connolly - Glasgow is a city that loves art.

These paintings may not be the most famous, but in our opinion they're the best. They really speak to and of Glaswegian culture in novel ways that extend to people far beyond the boundaries of the city.
