About Us

The Glasgow Life Photo Library holds images from the unique collections of Glasgow Museums and Glasgow Libraries and Archives. With paintings from all the major European schools - including Old Masters, French Impressionists, Glasgow Boys (and Girls) and the pre-Raphaelites - to social history images and historic photographs of shipbuilding on the Clyde, we offer opportunities to add a fresh look to your product range, publication, project or campaign. Or why not order a fine art, photographic or canvas print from our collections?
