Vote for your favourite Chrales Rennie Mackintosh print and get it free
CHARLES Rennie Mackintosh is synonymous with Glasgow and the creative legacy he etched upon it. From the architectural masterpieces and stunning interior design schemes to his late work as a watercolourist, Mackintosh’s artistic range was astounding, as the new exhibition at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, Charles Rennie Mackintosh: Making the Glasgow Style, highlights.
And as the city of his birth celebrates his 150th birthday with a programme of events, we’re offering readers the chance to enjoy a piece of that legacy for themselves with a free print.
The Herald has teamed up with People Make Glasgow to give away a free Mackintosh print with every copy of the paper on June 7. And we want your help in deciding which work – all of which you can see at the exhibition – it should be. We’re offering four options representing different stages and aspects of Mackintosh’s life and development, and we want you to vote for the one you think should be given away next month.
The choices are: A wonderful representation of the influential graphic style of Mackintosh. Drawn in pencil and finished in watercolour by Mackintosh as part of the scheme for Miss Cranston’s tea room. Painted as Mackintosh and his wife Margaret Macdonald moved from London to the south of France. This much-loved watercolour highlights Mackintosh’s love and understanding of architecture and colour.
Glasgow Museums curator Alison Brown said: “The exhibition at Kelvingrove highlights Mackintosh’s incredible multi-faceted talent.
“I simply couldn’t chose an absolute favourite Mackintosh work.
“Come to Kelvingrove and enjoy the works before making your decision.”
