We visit the Charles Rennie Mackitosh exhibition at the Walker Art Gallery (entry included in tour price – Adrian Sumner on board to inform). This exhibition will span the lifetime of Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868–1928) and his contemporaries, exploring the movement that became known as The Glasgow Style. The Glasgow Style refers to the design and decorative arts centred around the work by teachers, students and graduates of the Glasgow School of Art produced between about 1890 and 1920.

Glasgow was the birthplace of the only Art Nouveau ‘movement’ in the UK and its style made ripples internationally. The exhibition will present objects from Glasgow Museums and the Mitchell Library and Archives as well as loans from private and public collections. About 250 objects will be on display across the full spectrum of media, including stained glass, ceramics, mosaic, metalwork, furniture, stencilling, embroidery, graphics, books, interiors and architecture.

The Gallery is also hosting an exhibition of 12 Leonardo da Vinci drawings to mark the 500th anniversary of the Renaissance master's death, exploring the diversity of subjects that inspired his creativity, including painting, sculpture, architecture, music, anatomy, engineering, cartography, geology and botany.

The free exhibition will also present new information about Leonardo's working practices and creative process, gathered through scientific research using a range of non-invasive techniques including ultraviolet imaging, infrared reflectography and X-ray fluorescence.

There will then be free time to explore the many other museums, galleries and attractions in Liverpool, including Fernand Leger and Liverpool Mountain by Swiss-artist Ugo Rondinon at Tate Liverpool.
