Glasgow Girls: Women in Art & Design, 1880-1920

£ 40.00

At the turn of the 20th century, Glasgow was the centre for an avant-garde movement of art and design innovation in Europe, referred to now asThe Glasgow Style. While the Glasgow Boys group of painters has been widely written about, their female contemporaries have received far less attention. In this work, the editor redresses this imbalance, bringing together research from 18 scholars on the work of an astonishing number of female artists from this period.

This book features the work of Margaret Macdonald Mackintosh and her sister Frances. Margaret was married to Charles Rennie Mackintosh, and her work (and that of other women in their circle) was both important in its own right and highly influential on the development of his. It features throughout the Mackintosh House at The Hunterian.
