Mackintosh

Foreword by Anne Ellis

Mackintosh is a celebration of the extraordinary career of one of the most intriguing and influential artists of his time, Charles Rennie Mackintosh. This book follows his artistic development, from his early architectural and interior designs in Glasgow to his eventual withdrawal into landscape painting in the South of France.

Mackintosh was a man of daring vision, who mastered the decorative arts, architecture, design and painting with spirited determination and self-belief. Known internationally as the father of the ‘Glasgow Style’, he became a driving force behind a new approach to modern architecture and design, as well as the forerunner of Art Deco and the Modern Movement.

Tamsin Pickeral lived for some time in Italy furthering her appreciation of art. She has travelled extensively through her life, and has recently returned to the UK after nine years spent living an unusual life on a cattle ranch in the US. She now resides in Norfolk, with her cowboy, where she continues to write about art and horses, two of her favourite topics.
