In The Tui­leries Gar­dens, Burgh Hall, Dunoon, Oct 12 to Oct 23

On dis­play at Burgh Hall in Dunoon dur­ing Oc­to­ber is In The Tui­leries Gar­dens by Edgar De­gas, one of the founders of French Im­pres­sion­ism.

Dat­ing from 1880, the oil is on ex­clu­sive loan to the Burgh Hall from The Bur­rell Col­lec­tion/Glas­gow Life on be­half of Glas­gow City Coun­cil and with the ap­proval of the Bur­rell Trus­tees.

“The Bur­rell Col­lec­tion holds one of the great­est col­lec­tions of De­gas’ works in the world, which in­cludes pieces from ev­ery pe­riod of the artist’s ca­reer, some never viewed out­side of the Col­lec­tion in Glas­gow,” says Brid­get McCon­nell, chief ex­ec­u­tive of Glas­gow Life.

She adds: “This ex­clu­sive loan of De­gas’ ex­cep­tional work, In The Tui­leries Gar­dens, to the Dunoon Burgh Hall, re­flects our com­mit­ment to share Sir Wil­liam Bur­rell’s legacy, giv­ing au­di­ences a richer un­der­stand­ing of the works he ac­quired and cre­at­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for col­lab­o­ra­tion with lo­cal, na­tional and in­ter­na­tional com­mu­ni­ties.”

Events while the paint­ing’s on show in­clude a pre­sen­ta­tion by Vivien Hamil­ton, the Bur­rell Col­lec­tion’s lead­ing ex­pert on De­gas, and a talk by ar­chi­tect John McAs­lan on the Bur­rell’s on­go­ing re­fur­bish­ment.
