Product description

Dowanhill Church was designed by William Leiper in 1863 and served as a place of worship until the building came into disrepair in the 1980s. The congregation sold the church to the Four Acres Charitable Trust who started a quest to bring this Glasgow landmark back to its former glory. In the process, they discovered a remarkable decorative interior produced by a man called Daniel Cottier. Cottier, a Glasgow native artist, worked closely with significant contemporaries such as architect William Leiper during the second half of the nineteenth century. Although relatively unknown locally, Cottier became a major influence in international circles as a stained glass artist, decorator, furniture designer as well as art dealer and promoter of younger talent. 'Cottier's in Context' explores the life, work and influence of Daniel Cottier and his contemporary William Leiper, and at the same time details the hugely significant surviving interior of Dowanhill Church.
