This show follows the long and varied career of the artist Raoul Reynolds, who was born in Glasgow in 1882 and died in New York in 1969.

He has been rediscovered recently by art historians whose research made it possible to attribute many anonymous modernist artworks to him. Often overlooked, Reynolds experimented with forms, materials and styles. He led a nomadic existence, often travelling between Glasgow and Marseille.

Reynolds was heavily influenced by the European avant-garde art movements. He was regarded by his peers as a maverick and an outsider, which may explain the lack of documentation and the mystery surrounding his life and work. This exhibition offers visitors an opportunity to discover the extensive experimentation in Reynold’s work and attempts to shed some light on his influence on contemporary art practices.
