A masterful celebration of the life work of a great artist, this volume additionally constitutes a revealing biography on the designer, that brings to light the circumstances in which he produced his amazing work, and the evolution of his relatively short career. Considering design and visual beauty as a key element in his furniture style, Mackintosh put as much care in the creation of his pieces of furniture as in his major architectural commissions. Always much in demand during his career, he can be regarded as the greatest British designer and architect since Robert Adam. This volume is a tribute, in essays and magnificent pictures, to the beauty and skill of his work.
Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868-1928) was a Scottish architect, designer, water colorist and artist whose approach had much in common with European Symbolism. His work had great influence on such movements as Art Nouveau and Secessionism and was praised by great modernists such as Josef Hoffmann.
