Mackintosh 'Fritallaria' Flower Print

Sold Out

Mounted print of the Charles Rennie Mackintosh watercolour
"Fritillaria" 1915

This is a digitally printed image of the original, which is part of the extensive collection of the Estate of Charles Rennie Mackintosh at the Hunterian.

Notes about the original: The drawings of wild flowers which Mackintosh produced in 1915 are probably the most elegant and delicate of all. Fritillaria is a flower with such obvious appeal for Mackintosh that it seems odd he had not drawn it before. The chequer-work on its petals is much like many of his decorative stencils, and he acknowledges his debt by repeating the dicing in the signature box. In Southern Britain, as an indigenous plant, Fritillary (Fritillaria meleagris) is a rarity of ancient damp pasture. However, it is commonly grown in gardens.

Note on print colours. The background colours of prints in this range vary. This is due to the different papers on which they were executed, and the aging process since their creation. In every instance we try to ensure that the colours of the drawings are as close to the originals as technically possible.
