C.R.MACKINTOSH ART LOVER TOUR GLASGOW

Friday, March 07, 2008

This evening I am presenting various images from today's Charles Rennie Mackintosh tour which included the famous House for an Art Lover. This design was submitted in 1901 for a competition sponsored by a German magazine for a sumptuous Haus eines Kumsdtfreundes. This inspired Mackintosh and his wife Margaret MacDonald to create a princely private dwelling which is acknowledged as a masterpiece of early Modernism.

The House was finally completed in 1996 and can be found in Glasgow's Bellahouston Park near to the famous Burrell Collection.

There are a number of interesting Mackintosh sites in Glasgow and there exists a society dedicated Mackintosh's work.
