Charles Rennie Mackintosh: Born June 7, 1868

Charles Rennie Mackintosh, the Scottish architect, designer, watercolourist and sculpter was born this day on history, 1868. He had mayor influence on European design and perhaps was the main exponent of Art Nouveau in the United Kingdom. His international reputation was mainly thanks to the Glasgow School of Art. You can see more images of the school after the break (photos were taken by abbozzo from our Flickr pool), along with some picture of Mackintosh’s famous chairs.
