The Mackintosh Legacy

In designing the Glasgow School of Art , architect and painter Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868 - 1928) embraced every aspect of the space, including  moving between rooms. Flower alcoves were built at the entrance to each painting studio, with instructions for stems to be placed daily. Mackintosh saw the vital connection between nature, harmony and mood for the aspiring artist.

The devastating fires at the Glasgow School of Art touched many people not least the painters and artists who went through the famous doors.

Here are some images of the Art School:
