Artist of the moment………..Charles Mackintosh

 

 

Charles Mackintosh was a Scottish born architect and artist who painted in a modernist style. Charles Mackintosh was born in Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom in the year 1868. He was the fourth of eleven children. His father worked in the city police department. Mackintosh also worked as a sculptor.

He won a scholarship to study architecture after his high school age education was complete. He worked in this field from 1896 to 1906. Below we view a fantastic house that was designed by Charles Mackintosh but not completed until recently. The house is filled with examples of modernist art including the fireplace, many sets of tables and chairs, and light fixtures:

Mackintosh was inspired by Japanese art.

As a painter the artist worked mainly with the medium of watercolor. His favorite subjects were landscapes and floral works.

Price range information: Sorry none available.

He lived briefly in France and painted marine scenes of Port- Verdes, France often.

Charles Mackintosh passed away from cancer in 1928 at the age of 60 years old.

I enjoy the shapes the artist used in his depiction of flowers.
