This afternoon, I am posting information on Charles Rennie Mackintosh, a Glasgow born architect who left a considerable legacy of work in the city of his birth.

Very briefly, Mackintosh (1868-1928) was a designer, architect and artist whose work covered a very broad compass, from jewellery to graphics, from wall decoration to exhibited paintings, from pottery vases to wood engraving. Often working in conjunction with his wife, Margaret McDonald, Mackintosh designed a wide array of objects for domestic use including tables, chairs, cutlery and napkins, carpets, mirrors, curtain fabric and light fittings, beds, hat stands, wardrobes and clocks. He also designed buildings in their entirety, including foundations, structural steel, ventilation systems and plumbing. He also painted landscapes and flowers.
