Mackintosh 'Petunia' Flower Print
Sorry, currently out of stock
"Petunia, Walberswick" 1914
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: This watercolour shows two flowers of Petunia hybrida from South America, the commonly grown half-hardy annual, and an unidentified plant lower centre. Mackintosh left Glasgow in the early summer of 1914, and he and his artist-wife Margaret Macdonald went to stay in Walberswick. There Mackintosh produced a series of flower drawings, and a number of watercolour studies of the surrounding landscape, developing the themes and style of his Sussex and Kent drawings of 1909 and 1910.

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.
