Charles Rennie Mackintosh: the man behind the icons.

On Tuesday 12th October the Bath branch of the Charles Rennie Mackintosh Society returns to BRLSI with a talk by Professor John McKean entitled Mackintosh the man.
We know so much about the Mackintosh buildings and designs, such as the Glasgow School of Art, the Hill House and his furniture, yet we know relatively little about how he worked and came up with these works of art that have stood the test of time. This illustrated talk will look at where Mackintosh’s creativity came from and how it inspired his architectural and design work.
Professor McKean will also discuss how Mackintosh worked, designed and created the masterpieces that we know and love. Author of several popular books on Mackintosh including Charles Rennie Mackintosh: Architect, Artist, Icon and The Mackintosh Pocket Guide, Professor Mckean is currently working on writing the new edition of A History of Architecture which was first published in 1896 by Sir Banister Fletcher and is now in its twentieth edition. John Mckean was until recently Professor of Architecture at the University of Brighton.
The talk will start at 7.30pm, and tickets will be available on the door. For more details telephone  01225 443356.
