Designing the New: Charles Rennie Mackintosh and the Glasgow Style

Frist Art Museum / Nashville / Art

Monastic line full of enchanting echo effects. The exquisite poise of Japanese art. Scottish motifs as stenciled or stained-glass abstractions. The design ideals of Charles Rennie Macintosh—architect, furniture designer, and watercolorist—animate Glasgow Style, Scotland’s answer to the artisanal modernism of the Vienna Secession and England’s Arts and Crafts Movement. The Frist exhibition puts Macintosh and Glasgow Style in context, with 165 works from Glasgow museums and private collections. —L.J.
