The Druids—Bringing in the Mistletoe, 1890, by George Henry (Scottish, 1858–1943) and Edward Atkinson Hornel (Scottish, b. Australia, 1864–1933). Published with the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum/Glasgow Museums.
One of the Glasgow Boys, a group of young painters who revolutionized Scottish art in the nineteenth century, Edward Atkinson Hornel (Scottish, b. Australia, 1864–1933) studied art in Edinburgh and Antwerp as a young man. His early work—including many landscapes with figures—shows the influence of Belgian traditions. But beginning in 1885, a close friendship with another member of the group, George Henry (Scottish, 1858–1943), led him toward more decorative work and symbolism. In 1890 the two collaborated on The Druids—Bringing in the Mistletoe, a richly textured and ornamented winter scene depicting an ancient Celtic ceremony.
