Mackintosh, the International Nationalist

Mackintosh, the International Nationalist 'I Find myself with the rooted conviction that nationality of any sort is perhaps the most formidable enemy to any species of art development. The creative faculty is a feature in human consciousness of such delicacy and poise that it can hardly but be utterly upset by any manifestation of self-consciousness – national or international.' John Begg, 1934 2 'What, exactly, is the Modern Movement? Was it not the movement started by that remarkable Scotsman, the late Charles Rennie Mackintosh of Glasgow. Ask the Continentals about this. You will find that they regard Charles Mackintosh as the arch-apostle of the modern school in architecture just as Karl Marx is regarded as the arch-apostle of communism.'

Abstract

'I Find myself with the rooted conviction that nationality of any sort is perhaps the most formidable enemy to any species of art development. The creative faculty is a feature in human consciousness of such delicacy and poise that it can hardly but be utterly upset by any manifestation of self-consciousness – national or international.' John Begg, 1934 2 'What, exactly, is the Modern Movement? Was it not the movement started by that remarkable Scotsman, the late Charles Rennie Mackintosh of Glasgow. Ask the Continentals about this. You will find that they regard Charles Mackintosh as the arch-apostle of the modern school in architecture just as Karl Marx is regarded as the arch-apostle of communism.' John Begg, 1936 3
