AUTHOR

SUMMARY

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 lavishly illustrated edition of Mackintosh's Master-work 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. The Glasgow School of Art in association with Rutgers University PressMackintosh's Masterwork: The Glassgow School of Art, was published 2004 under ISBN 9780813534459 and ISBN 0813534453.
