F993 Fall 2018 The Curious Life and Career of Charles Rennie Mackintosh
Friday, 1:00–2:30, Oct. 26
Instructor: Roz Hoagland
Scottish architect and designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh had a short, but spectacular, career in late 19th century Glasgow. His elegant linear Art Nouveau approach was not highly regarded then, but it is celebrated now. We’ll look at his rather sad life and examine his buildings and designs for applied art. Comparisons will also be made with the works of his contemporaries in Scotland, the rest of Europe, and the United States.
