Arts and Crafts movement
Mackintosh is seen as an important representative of the Arts and Crafts movement; an artistic movement that took place in Britain in the second part of the 19th century in Britain. The Arts and Crafts movement originated in response to industrialisation and mass production, and its purpose was to combine art and craftsmanship. Stylistic, linear shapes, based on nature were typical features of this movement. It is no wonder that the Jugendstil and Art Nouveau movements have originated from the Arts and Crafts movement.
Architect and designer
Charles Rennie Mackintosh founded The Four, a group of artists also referred to as The Glasgow Four, with three other artists. Mackintosh designed buildings, but also furniture and applied arts. Glasgow is the home to various stunning, architectonical objects, designed by Mackintosh from head to toe. The famous stylistic rose combined with bright, vertical lines will always remain connected to Mackintosh. The Glasgow Four was inspired by the Celtic mystique, the lines of Jan Toorop, but also by the Scottish gothic revival. This variety of inspirational sources makes Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s work impressive, unique and timeless.
