GRAND DE­SIGNS

Vote for your favourite Chrales Ren­nie Mack­in­tosh print and get it free

The Herald - - FRONT PAGE - MAR­I­ANNE TAY­LOR

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.”
