About Charles Rennie Mackintosh
The architect and designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh is a co-founder of Scottish Art Nouveau and was throughout his life in search of "true, modern, individual art".
He was born in Glasgow, Scotland, in 1868 and studied at the Glasgow School of Art while working as a draughtsman in an architectural office. His first designs show a clear rejection of historicism. Curvy, gracefully shaped grids adorn the first tearoom he designed. His participation in the London Arts and Crafts Exhibition brought him recognition far beyond Scotland. His sense for volume and geometry of line gave new impetus to the predominantly French Art Nouveau style.
His buildings are usually of clear design and form a balanced unity in their integrated whole of sculptural elements and windows. Mackintosh is therefore also an important precursor of the functional and rational architectural concept of the 20th century. His designs in the field of arts and crafts together with the houses and interiors he built achieve a unique overall impression. No other artist of his time was able to combine rational and expressive elements in such a fascinating way.
Mackintosh died in London on 10 December 1928.
