Charles Rennie Mackintosh (7 June 1868 - 10 December 1928) was a Scottish architect, designer, water colourist and artist. His artistic approach had much in common with European Symbolism. His work, alongside that of his wife Margaret Macdonald, was influential on European design movements such as Art Nouveau and Secessionism. Combining his roots in Modernism and interest in Art Nouveau with a Scottish art tradition, Mackintosh invested his own instantly recognizable style. His most famous building is surely the legendary Glasgow School of Art, one of the most famous landmarks of that city and acclaimed as the first "truly modern" building. Also in Glasgow are the Mackintosh-designed Willow Tea rooms, Argyle Street Tea rooms, and Buchanan Street Tea Rooms, all of which are featured in this book. The breadth of Mackintosh's creative output was considerable, ranging from interior decoration schemes and designs for furniture, textiles and posters, through watercolors and pencil drawings, to vast public architecture projects. Gathered together here are many of his greatest works, offering a comprehensive visual appreciation of a unique style.
