Lost pieces of art from the golden age of Hollywood have been rediscovered and are now in a new home, here at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
Six original backdrops from the early Metro Goldwyn Mayer film archive have generously been donated to the RCS Scenic Art department from the Art Directors Guild, Archive.
These magnificent pieces were created by George Gibson, a Scot who trained in Glasgow before moving to Hollywood in the early 20th century to pioneer the new art form of painted film backdrops.
Join us for a special event on 15 April, hosted by scenic art lecturer Gary Fry and film lecturer Andy Dougan, to find out more how these iconic pieces of film history were created and used on the big screen. This is the first time these art works have been seen in the UK - and, for some, more than 75 years since they were last on public display.
