Description

Charles Rennie mackintosh (1868-1928) has been described by Reyner Banham as "the last British architect of undoubted genius". As a result of exhibitions before the First World War in Vienna, Turin and Moscow, Mackintosh became the most celebrated British architect in Europe since Robert Adam and attracted an international recognition that is steadily increasing. His earliest and last works were watercolours, and he would have considered himself as much as painter as an architect and designer. The extraordinary development of his style as a painter is comprehensively illustrated here and admirably described in Roger Billcliffe's introduction and catalogue raisonne. This book is the first study in depth of this one aspect of the Scottish pioneer of total environments which was widely welcomed by all admirers of Mackintosh's works and by students of European painting before and after the First World War.
This study of Mackintosh's watercolours, Rober Billcliffe's book is particularly welcome, and his excellent introduction and catalogue raisonne give a well-balanced assessment of the importance and relationship of Mackintosh's watercolours to his work in architectural and furniture design.
