CHARLES RENNIE MACKINTOSH

Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868 - 1928) was a Scottish architect, artist, water colourist and designer. His artistic approach had much in common with European Symbolism and Mackintosh was influential on the European design movements and received praise by one of the great modernists Austrian - Josef Hoffmann. 

Mackintosh exhibited in Glasgow, London and Vienna, and these exhibitions helped establish Mackintosh's reputation. The so-called "Glasgow" style was exhibited in Europe and influenced the Viennese Art Nouveau movement known as Sezessionstil (in English, the Vienna Secession) at the turn of the 20th century.
