The focus of the book - as the title suggests - is mainly on the images of flowers that Mackintosh created throughout his artistic career. These depictions of flowers may come as a revelation to many people who have only seen Mackintosh's architecture, for they show a side of the artist that is not normally seen in his more formal works.
Most of the floral images were done in watercolor, which, as any painter will tell you, is a demanding medium. And yet Mackintosh handles watercolor with such subtlety and skill that the resulting images are nothing short of remarkable. Well, as the old saying goes, "a picture is worth a thousand words", so you are invited to check out the book, and see these fabulous flowers for yourself. Just remember - you too might be seduced by this compelling book.
Flowers: Charles Rennie Mackintosh is available at Amazon.com.
