A beautiful poster featuring Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s drawing of Fritillaria from 1915.
This lovely Duille poster features the beautiful pencil and watercolour drawing of ‘The Snakeshead Fritillary’ (Fritillaria meleagris) by Charles Rennie Mackintosh. The drawing was made in 1915 at Walberswick on the east coast of England where Mackintosh was living with his wife Margaret at that time. It is thought that this work, one of a series featuring wild flowers made around the same period, was intended for publication in a book.
Our poster has been reproduced, with kind permission, directly from the original work held in the collection of The University of Glasgow. It’s full of vivid detail, vitality and charm. Mackintosh, clearly fascinated by the checkerwork petals of the plant, has decorated his signature panel with the same design. The checkerwork pattern is a motif much favoured in many designs throughout his career and its combination here with a botanical subject is unique amongst Mackintosh’s works.
Printed on silk paper and suitable for framing or display with poster fixings.
Size: 297 W x 420 H mm (A3).
Your poster will be sent wrapped in acid free tissue and protectively packed.
