About the work
Charles Rennie Mackintosh and his wife Margaret visited Chiddingstone, Kent in 1910. Mackintosh made a series of works here ( including also Crab – Apple and Japonica ). These botanical drawings all have a similar format and are usually inscribed with the artist’s initials and also with those of who were with him. In this case the cartouche reads “CRM and MMM” ( Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Margaret Macdonald Mackintosh ). Blackthorn is a detailed study of the dramatic flowers and stems of Prunus spinosa ( a European native also known as ‘Sloe’ and used for flavouring gin ). The Blackthorn has dense clouds of snow-white flowers in spring. Like Japonica the style of this drawing shows the influence of Japanese aesthetics on Mackintosh’s work; an approach played out in numerous other designs during his career.
The giclée process is ‘the best kind of fine art print available today’ and uses precision digital technology. Giclée prints are favoured by leading international museums and fine artists for their superb quality in reproduction. The prints are rich, detailed and with saturated colour – these prints are often mistaken for originals.
As with any work of art we recommend displaying your print away from direct sunlight to prevent fading.
