Information

The Burrell Collection is situated in the tranquil surroundings of Pollok Country Park in the South of the city and holds over 9,000 works of art, covering a wide range of subjects, origins and time periods. Major categories include stained glass and tapestries, oak furniture, medieval weapons and armour, artefacts from ancient Egypt, Chinese and Islamic art, French Impressionist paintings by Degas and Cézanne and sculptures by Rodin. The Chinese collection at the Burrell is the third largest of its kind in Europe, and the fact that it was collected by only one man, Sir William Burrell (1861-1958), makes it particularly unique and significant. The collection includes over 170 bronzes from as early as the Shang Dynasty (sixteenth to eleventh-century BC), approximately 146 pieces of jade, and more than 1,300 ceramics, ranging from Neolithic earthenware to Chinese export porcelain of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.
