Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868-1928) was and remains the most
distinguished figure of what was known as the Glasgow School.
An architect, decorator, graphic artist, painter and furniture
designer, Mackintosh was known for combining the prosaic with
the sumptuous, the severe with the romantic. This collection
of essays examines his work in relation to the character of
Glasgow and other artistic developments of the era. It also
considers his contributions, and those of his wife and associates,
to the cultural vibrancy of their city.

This volume looks at Mackintosh's work from his early days as
an apprentice in Glasgow through to the late 1920s spent in
Provence. By looking at his work in all media; silverwork, metalwork,
graphics, textiles, furniture and architecture, this work presents
a multi-faceted approach. Among the many projects discussed
are the Glasgow Herald Building Martyr's Public School, Queen
Margaret's Medical College, Glasgow School of Art, Willow Tea
Rooms, Windyhill, Mosside and Kilmacolm. The text also looks
at Mackintosh's work as a painter (1914-15) and his return to
architecture. His later designs in all media are also featured,
with an examination of Studio House, Chelsea and the proposed
Arts League and Derngate in Northampton. Finally, the author
looks at Mackintosh's time spent in Provence, where he produced
some of his most important watercolours, and examines his influence
both locally and around the world.
A biography of architect and interior designer Charles Rennie
Mackintosh, which draws on interviews, letters and papers to
provide an insight into his character, the way he worked, and
the effects of his life and work on those around him. First
published in 1989.
