Charles Rennie Mackintosh - A Modern Man (1996) BBC
For over 20 years the Scottish architect and designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh worked almost exclusively in Glasgow where all his best-known work was created and where much of it remains today. It was only in later life that Mackintosh left Glasgow in search of greater success, ending his career in London where he died in relative obscurity at the age of 60. A Modern Man takes a critical look at Mackintosh's life and artistic career and the importance of the friends and patrons who proved him with regular work when it mattered most.
Charles Rennie Mackintosh, architect, designer and artist is celebrated around the world as one of the most significant talents to have emerged in the period from the mid 1890s to the late 1920s. He was one of the greatest, most original talents of this time and has been judged a precursor of firstly the modernist style and subsequently of the Art Deco movement. His legacy lives on all around us in his instantly recognisable style.
A MODERN MAN takes a critical look at Mackintosh’s life and artistic career and the importance of the friends and patrons who provided him with regular work when it mattered most. Influential critics, including the designer Terence Conran, give their views on Mackintosh’s current reputation. All are unanimous in their appreciation of “the complete designer”. Together, they recognise his importance as an influential architect of the 20th century and acknowledge that Charles Rennie Mackintosh was very much A MODERN MAN. This is the story of the man and his life and his work.
