Product Description
Charles Rennie Mackintosh: Botanical Paintings Boxed Notecards
Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868–1928) may have been Scotland’s finest architect and designer, in his own time and beyond. If his paintings have not received the wide attention given to his building and interior design, it may be because he turned to painting—especially flower painting—less for public recognition than for personal satisfaction. That is not to say that he didn’t take it seriously: although Mackintosh rarely exhibited his paintings, he long planned a revelatory London show.

Mackintosh began to paint in earnest at a time when his architectural star had waned. After moving to London in 1914, he concentrated increasingly on landscapes and still-life flower compositions. With rich hues unseen in his earlier watercolors, these quietly exuberant paintings reveal both extensive botanical knowledge and mastery of tonal variations and color harmonies.

Mackintosh died before the London show he had hoped for could be organized. Five years later, in his hometown of Glasgow, a memorial exhibition of his work took place. Most of his watercolors were sold, at prices as low as £10.

Interest in Mackintosh and his works has spread in recent years, thanks in large part to the scholarship of Roger Billcliffe, an author and historian who keeps a Glasgow art gallery and through whose efforts this notecard collection was assembled.

Blackthorn, Chiddingstone, 1910
Borage, Walberswick, 1914
