About the work
A year after Charles and Margaret Mackintosh spent their honeymoon on Holy Island they returned with friends and family. Mackintosh completed many sketches and drawings of flowers. It is clear that his watercolour technique was developing during this trip and his use of pencil and watercolour in these elegant botanical studies became something of signature style which evolved over many years following. The Common Mallow ( Malva sylvestris ) grows wild in many parts of England and across Europe. It is often used in wildflower gardens. Mackintosh’s drawing includes the initials ‘M’ and ‘T’ in the inscription panel and it is thought that this records his and Margaret’s presence in when the drawing was made ( ‘T’ in this case representing his nickname ‘Tosh’ or ‘Toshie’ ).

About giclée
The giclée process is ‘the best kind of fine art print available today’ and uses precision digital technology. Favoured by leading international museums and fine artists for superb detail and quality of reproduction with rich 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.

Made to last
This is a hand-finished, museum-quality archival print made using materials which will last for many years. It is printed in archival quality pigment inks on Somerset Velvet 255gsm acid free paper reproducing the original work.
