Charles Rennie Mackintosh: Making the Glasgow Style

About

This exhibition will span the lifetime of Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868–1928) and his contemporaries, exploring the movement that became known as The Glasgow Style.

The Glasgow Style refers to the design and decorative arts centred around the work by teachers, students and graduates of the Glasgow School of Art produced between about 1890 and 1920.

Glasgow was the birthplace of the only Art Nouveau ‘movement’ in the UK and its style made ripples internationally. The exhibition will present objects from Glasgow Museums and the Mitchell Library and Archives as well as loans from private and public collections. About 250 objects will be on display across the full spectrum of media, including stained glass, ceramics, mosaic, metalwork, furniture, stencilling, embroidery, graphics, books, interiors and architecture.
