Charles Rennie Mackintosh
A globally celebrated artist, designer and architect, Charles Rennie Mackintosh developed his unique Art Noveau style from the 1890s to 1920s. Superb examples of his work can still be enjoyed throughout Glasgow.

One of eleven children, Mackintosh studied at Glasgow School of Art, a building he later redesigned. He won a competition to join an architectural firm and went on to become a master, his work varying from private houses to schools.
Charles Rennie Mackintosh

Not only famed for buildings, Mackintosh was an excellent artist and furniture designer, examples of which can be seen in various sites throughout Glasgow. By the end of the 19th century Glasgow was a leader in European architecture, not least due to the genius of Mackintosh.

Europe quickly appreciated his original designs but he was relatively unknown in his native city before his death in 1928. It is ironic that, towards the end of the 20th century, he was recognized as the father of the now famous 'Glasgow Style'.

His legend lives on in Glasgow and his breathtaking work is truly a must-see experience. There are over 12 public Mackintosh sites to explore and with buildings such as the Glasgow School of Art, Willow Tearooms, and House for an Art Lover to name a few, you will not be disappointed.
