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.

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.

His design style is instantly recognisable, a rejuvenation of the established art nouveau movement. His buildings are both visually stunning and highly functional. His design for the world-famous Glasgow School of Arts new site received such acclaim that his name was given to its School of Architecture. Having left the architecture firm that brought him fame, and suffered the failure of two independent ventures in Glasgow and London, he gave up design and set off for the South of France, where he proved himself a prolific and gifted painter. This is the story of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, a unique and driving force in the establishment of modernism, famous in his own time, and the most prominent Scottish architect in history. Behind the celebrated works was an ordinary man with extraordinary passion. Afflicted with an explosive temper and a fondness for alcohol, Mackintosh aggravated men and attracted women, none more than his fellow artist, collaborator, muse and wife, Margaret Macdonald. Their enduring relationship remains one of the great love stories of art 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.

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 (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 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.

life of only twenty-five years, Mackintosh designed over 300 pieces of furniture, a number that seems all the more impressive given that the majority were produced in the periods 1897-1905 and 1916-1918." "After an introduction in which Billcliffe perceptively analyses Mackintosh's career and scholarly interpretations of it, the book is arranged as a complete chronological catalogue of his work as a furniture designer. As well as the entries on individual designs and pieces, the catalogue includes essays on alllVlackintosh's major commissions for interiors and on his designs in general at specific periods of his career. Contemporary photographs are used extensively to show interiors (many of them now destroyed) as they were at the time of their completion. Pieces of furniture which cannot be traced are listed by reference to the job books that record the details of designs by Mackintosh or the firms of which he was a member." "This is the only comprehensive work on the furniture --

"Towards the end of his life Charles Rennie Mackintosh moved to the south of France where he devoted himself to painting in watercolour. Meticulously executed and brilliantly coloured, these works are conceived with a sense of design and an eye for pattern in nature which owe much to his genius as an architect and designer. This book records Mackintosh's time in France and explores his career as a landscape painter, placing his paintings in the context of the modern movement. All the works Mackintosh is known to have completed in France are illustrated and are accompanied by photographs of the places he painted as well as extracts from his letters."--BOOK JACKET.

One of the works of great Arts and Crafts architecture, the School is a creative synthesis of opposites: austere and delicate, dark and light, derivative yet innovative. While the towering outer wall seems to echo the Scottish baronial tradition and the exterior impression is one of imposing grandeur, the interior is a lively and complex set of spaces.
