Kirjastus: Thames and Hudson

Kirjeldus: Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s finest work dates from about a dozen intensely
creative years around 1900. His buildings in Glasgow, and especially his
craggy masterpiece the Glasgow School of Art, are more complex and playful
than any other work in Britain at that time. His interiors, many of them
designed in collaboration with his wife, Margaret Macdonald, are both spare
and sensuous; a world of heightened aesthetic sensibility inside the Willow
Tea Rooms or The Hill House. And his inventive imagination, which played
constantly with the shape of curves and squares, produced designs for
furniture which transformed ordinary chairs into pieces of abstract
sculpture. Finally, in the 1920s he painted a series of watercolours which
are as original as anything he had done before.
