This book is a celebration of the extraordinary career of one of the most intriguing and influential artists of his time. Charles Rennie Mackintosh. He was a man of daring vision, who mastered the decorative arts, architecture, design and painting, with sprited determination and self-belief. Known internationally as the Father of the 'Glasgow Style', he became a driving force behind a new approach to modern architecture and design. This book follows his artistic development, from his early architecture and interior designs in Glasgow to his eventual withdrawal into landscape painting in the South of France.
