Charles Rennie Mackintosh

Charles Rennie Mackintosh

Architect, designer and artist

Glasgow’s most famous child and an acknowledged architectural and design genius, Mackintosh’s work was a fusion of Scottish vernacular, Art Nouveau and the modern. But his style was too avant garde for home consumption, and he and his wife Margaret Macdonald settled in France, where he concentrated on watercolours and emerged as one of the finest British exponents of the medium. He is now seen as a prophet of the Modern Movement and a founder of modern architecture.
