This delightful Duille fine art print features “Winter Rose” made in pencil and watercolour by Charles Rennie Mackintosh in 1916 in Chelsea, London.
This unusual and understated watercolour from Mackintosh was produced in Chelsea, London during the First World War. A rose, the source of so much inspiration for the artist, is intensely observed in its faded winter beauty. This is a museum-quality archival print made using materials which will last for many years.
About the work
“Winter Rose” was painted in 1916 and this mid-war period proved to be financially difficult for the artist and his wife Margaret. With wartime building restrictions limiting demand Mackintosh’s only major architectural commission that year was for 78 Derngate, Northampton. The couple turned to producing textile designs which they sold to progressive manufacturers to raise funds. Mackintosh also painted several floral themed works for sale of which Winter Rose was one. Unusually for Mackintosh, famous for stylised stencilled roses, this example is rendered as a still life. Surrounded by hips and leaves in muted winter colour the detailed rendering of the flower and overall compositon make a very appealing subject.
