About this set

CHARLES RENNIE MACKINTOSH (1868-1928)

Ref WRC Influenced in turn by C.A. Voysey, Norman Shaw, Ruskin and the Vienna Secession, the effective years in Charles Rennie Mackintosh's practice were from 1897 to 1909 when he completed the library wing in the Glasgow School of Art. After this, he and his wife Margaret MacDonald moved from Scotland to England. The last years of his life were ones of progressive decline. Yet he had been the first British architect since Robert Adam to acquire an international reputation, and the only one who has ever become the rallying point for a European school of design. All the buildings in this image set are in or near Glasgow. Included are two views of the 'House for an Art Lover' now realised for the first time.
