NS5866 : Bust of Beethoven

taken 13 years ago, near to Glasgow, Great Britain

Bust of Beethoven
Bust of Beethoven
The front of the Ewing Galleries is in Sauchiehall Street, and is decorated with several allegorical figures.

The building, which was originally a piano and organ warehouse, has a back entrance at 341 Renfrew Street; in this less prominent and rather shaded location, a large bust of Beethoven is set on the pediment [for more information, see, for example, "Sculpture in Glasgow an illustrated handbook" by Ray McKenzie].

In recent times, the building has been put to other uses, and it has gone through many changes of name: The Velvet Rooms, Blanket, Guru, and others. At an earlier period, it housed a cinema. See LinkExternal link (at Historic Environment Scotland) for a detailed history of the building.
