Charles Rennie Mackintosh was a debonair Scottish artist who embraced a range of mediums. In fact, one of his most famous works of all was a building – the Glasgow School of Art. His work was inspired by everything from his home city of Glasgow to dainty Japanese art and the curves of Art Nouveau – culminating in a style that is all his own.
‘There is hope in honest error, none in the icy perfection of the mere stylist.’ (Charles Rennie Mackintosh)
