2019 Charles Rennie Mackintosh Wall Calendar

Author: Mackintosh, Charles Rennie

Description: In 1896, Charles Rennie Mackintosh (Scottish, 1868–1928) set the direction for modern European architecture with his art nouveau–influenced design for The Glasgow School of Art. Commissions for everything from mansions to tearooms followed. Mackintosh remained in Glasgow for two decades, designing buildings, furniture, textiles, and wallpapers. His bold originality was recognized and appreciated on the Continent but went largely unnoticed at home. In 1914 he and his English-born wife, artist Margaret Macdonald Mackintosh (1864–1933), left Glasgow for England, where Mackintosh focused on textile design. He also produced—often collaborating with Margaret—a series of floral still-life watercolor compositions. After they moved to France in 1923, Mackintosh devoted himself to landscape painting, producing a series of remarkable studies of French towns and countryside. This calendar presents ten examples from the now-revered Scot’s wide-ranging oeuvre and two by Margaret Macdonald Mackintosh.
