Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Kunst - Architektur, Baugeschichte, Denkmalpflege, Note: 1 -, Pädagogische Hochschule Weingarten, Veranstaltung: Hauptseminararbeit: Fachwissenschaft Kunst, 10 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Warum Mackintosh? Mackintosh zählt zu einem der Jugendstilkünstler des letzten Jahrhunderts und macht den Jugendstil in Europa, im speziellen in Deutschland und Österreich, bekannt und beeinflusste diesen im Wesentlichen mit. Charles Rennie Mackintosh sorgte im Jahre 1901 in Deutschland und Österreich nachhaltig mit seinem Entwurf zum „Haus eines Kunstfreundes“ für Furore – vielleicht das Beste was Mackintosh je eingefallen ist, da sich die Stadt Glasgow zu einer späteren Verwirklichung der detaillierten Pläne entschlossen hat.1 Die große Revolution lag in der Asymmetrie von Grundriss und Fassade indem er den architektonischen Stimmungswert, den man als pittoresk modern bezeichnen könnte vorweg, und den Le Corbusier viele Jahre später in Chaux- de-Fonds realisiert.2 Mackintosh konnte damit auf dem europäischen Festland seine kreative Vielschichtigkeit und sein damaliges, extrem modernes Denken, für das er zuvor schon in mehren Journalen, Magazinen, Biennalen und Weltausstellungen erwähnt und honoriert wurde, unter Beweis stellen. Infolge dessen fand er namhafte Anhänger seiner Kunst, die seinem speziell reduzierten schottischen Stil folgten. ... ------- 1 vgl.

Charles Rennie Mackintosh's (Scottish, 1868-1928) textile designs are not widely known—unlike his architecture, furniture, and watercolors. Fortunately, many of his original drawings for textile designs, made between 1915 and 1923, have survived and are presented in this book, an expanded and revised edition of Mackintosh: Textile Designs (John Murray, 1982). Roger Billcliffe is a noted expert on Scottish art and on Mackintosh in particular. His previous books include Mackintosh Watercolours (Taplinger, 1978); Charles Rennie Mackintosh: The Complete Furniture, Furniture Drawings and Interior Designs (Taplinger, 1979), and Mackintosh Furniture (1984).

Charles Rennie Mackintosh has been hailed as a pioneer of modernism. However, he was perhaps truer to the arts and crafts movement, from which he sprang, than has been realized. Mackintosh was one of a group of architects known as The Four who met as students at the Glasgow School of Art. Macaulay explores the artistic legacy of Mackintosh and his relationship with The Four, as well as the role of their patrons in the development of a new elegance. Macaulay draws extensively on numerous archival sources --- the minutes and correspondence relating to the Glasgow School of Art, educational and ecclesiastical records as well as sketchbooks in Dublin and the rediscovered archive of the Glasgow Art Club. Sadly, what has not come to light, and probably never will now, is biographical information about the private lives of The Four --- but that is perhaps much as they would have wished. What does survive is a body of work --- buildings, furniture, drawings and paintings which continue to be a source of inspiration for architects and artists today. With both historic photographs and modern images of Mackintosh's major works taken by the noted architectural photographer Mark Fiennes, this is an essential and beautiful addition to the Mackintosh cannon and to architectural history.

Together with the National Library of Ireland, Architectural Press presents seventy previously unpublished drawings by Charles Rennie Mackintosh. The identification in the National Library of Ireland of three sketchbooks, from which these drawings have been selected, represents a significant addition to the body of early drawings by Mackintosh. The sketches date from a crucial period in the young man's development, spanning his highly successful student years and the beginnings of his professional career. Each of the three sketchbooks covers an area central to his growth as an artist: the architecture of his native Scotland, an important scholarship journey in Italy and, Mackintosh's first love and greatest influence, the study of plants and growing things. Essentially private, these little known and unique works provide privileged access to significant moments in the artist's intellectual and emotional life. In this book Elaine Grogan attempts to take them out of the library display-case and bring them to life in the hands of the reader. She invites us to look over Mackintosh's shoulder on his early tentative steps towards fulfilment as a creative genius. Connections are traced, both backwards in time to his training and forwards to his great successes and eventual bitter eclipse.

Charles Rennie Mackintosh was the third partner of John Honeyman and Keppie, the architectural practice now called Keppie Design which celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2004. Keppie's current managing director, David Stark, explores the development of the practice and its legacy of buildings across the West of Scotland and beyond, including the influential Mackintosh years. But this isn't just another dry book about buildings. It's also a tale of Victorian industrialists and their wealth and lifestyles; Kate Cranston and her famous tea rooms; and of other lesser-known architectural names such as John Keppie and Graham Henderson. From the white heat of Victorian economic activity and the resultant boom in the building of churches, charitable institutions and country villas, the story moves through more difficult years for the profession with a candour not often found in company histories. It is brought up to date with an examination of current trends and recent projects at a time when architecture is once again flourishing.

Of the many practitioners of art nouveau in Great Britain, Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868–1928) has outlasted them all. His work bridged the more ornate style of the later nineteenth century and the forms of international modernism that followed. Like Frank Lloyd Wright, with whom he is frequently compared, he is known for so thoroughly integrating art and decoration that the two became inseparable. His work has been honored by a major exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and his designs have proliferated to such an extent that they can be found reproduced in posters, prints, jewelry, and even new buildings. His most important project was the Glasgow School of Art, which still functions as a highly prestigious art school. This glorious building is visited each year by thousands of tourists from around the world. Built over a dozen years, beginning in 1897, the Glasgow School of Art is Mackintosh's greatest and most influential legacy. This completely redesigned and heavily illustrated edition of Mackintosh's Masterwork has been greatly expanded and contains newly discovered material about both the early life of the architect and the formative years in which his plans for the School of Art were executed.

Charles Rennie Mackintosh's finest work dates from about a dozen intensely creative years around 1900. His buildings in Glasgow, and especially his craggy masterpiece the Glasgow School of Art, are more complex and playful than any other work in Britain at that time. His interiors, many of them designed in collaboration with his wife, Margaret Macdonald, are both spare and sensuous; a world of heightened aesthetic sensibility inside the Willow Tea Rooms or The Hill House. And his inventive imagination, which played constantly with the shape of curves and squares, produced designs for furniture which transformed ordinary chairs into pieces of abstract sculpture. Finally, in the 1920s he painted a series of watercolours which are as original as anything he had done before.
