"Burrell's Gift to Glasgow"

In 1944, Sir William Burrell gifted the city his obsessive stockpile of art treasures, all of which were amassed during his prodigious lifetime. There is an amazing array of Impressionist works, Egyptian, Greek and Roman artifacts, china from various Chinese dynasties, European tapestries, furniture and church art. Pride of place goes to the Warwick Vase: a large, restored Roman urn that was once the property of Emperor Hadrian. Overall, the complex and its riches rank as Glasgow's cultural pride.
