Description

“Mackintosh’s avant garde approach embraced a variety of media as well as fresh stylistic devices. His multi faceted oeuvre incorporated architecture, furniture, graphic design, landscapes, and flower studies” Scottish architect, designer, and painter Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868 1928) was one of the earliest pioneers of modern architecture and design. While he never received major recognition in his hometown of Glasgow, his bold new blend of simplicity and poetic details inspired modernists across Europe.Mackintosh’s avant garde approach embraced a variety of media as well as fresh stylistic devices. His multi faceted oeuvre incorporated architecture, furniture, graphic design, landscapes, and flower studies. He embraced strong lines, elegant proportions, and natural motifs, combining a healthy dose of japonisme with a modernist sensibility for function. He preferred bold black typography, restrained shapes, and tall, generous windows suffusing rooms with light.Mackintosh’s
