About Sea Pink
Sea Pink was made when Mackintosh was visiting Holy Island on the north east coast of England.
The original drawing featured in the 150th anniversary exhibition, “Charles Rennie Mackintosh Making the Glasgow Style” at the Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery, Glasgow. The exhibition has since travelled to the Walker Art Gallery Liverpool and several venues in The United States.
Our card has been reproduced in stunning detail, close to actual size directly from this original drawing. By kind permission from the collection of The University of Glasgow we can reproduce this beautiful work for you to enjoy. It’s full of carefully observed detail and is the only drawing in which Mackintosh has labelled the different stages of a plant’s growth.
Throughout his entire life the study and representation of flowers was to be a driving passion and a defining foundation of the artist’s visual language.
Generously sized, the reverse of the card features further interesting information about the work along with a portrait of the artist.
The quality of the print is so good it could be framed!
