The architect, designer and painter Charles Rennie Mackintosh was one of the most famous exponents of the Art Nouveau movement in Great Britain.
The movement set out to enhance quality and originality in artisanship, while taking care of the details and planning of building design, paying attention to even the most minor architectural decorations.
While vacationing in Suffolk, Mackintosh began painting floral watercolors and textile
decorations. His shapes from nature became more and more abstract for approaching to
architecture and furnishing.
