Mackintosh 'Willow Herb' Flower Print

£ 7.99

Mounted print of the Charles Rennie Mackintosh watercolour
"Willow Herb, Buxstead" 1919

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: Mackintosh did some modest architectural work at East Grinstead in 1919, and in 1920 he had a small commission at Burgess Hill, both of which are near Buxted in Sussex. Mackintosh is also known to have visited this part of the country in 1909 and 1910. The main subject is the flowers and unopened fruits of Rosebay Willow-herb (Chamerion angustifolium), a now very common weed. The central flower is at a greater scale than the rest. At the bottom left is a flower of an unidentified plant.

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.
