Mackintosh, Burnet and Modernity

Mackintosh, Burnet and Modernity The career of John James Burnet (1857–1938) provides a striking contrast with that of his more famous Glaswegian contemporary, Charles Rennie Mackintosh. He had a wide and varied practice, he was responsible for large-scale projects all over Britain, including Glasgow, Edinburgh and London, and he enjoyed official recognition of his work when he was knighted in 1926. The elevation of Mackintosh into the Modernist Pantheon during the 1930s has tended to obscure Burnet's reputation, but it was not always so. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Architectural Heritage Edinburgh University Press

Abstract

The career of John James Burnet (1857–1938) provides a striking contrast with that of his more famous Glaswegian contemporary, Charles Rennie Mackintosh. He had a wide and varied practice, he was responsible for large-scale projects all over Britain, including Glasgow, Edinburgh and London, and he enjoyed official recognition of his work when he was knighted in 1926. The elevation of Mackintosh into the Modernist Pantheon during the 1930s has tended to obscure Burnet's reputation, but it was not always so.
