Charles Rennie Mackintosh & 78 Derngate

If you like Art Nouveau and are a fan of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, the centenary exhibition at the only house he designed in England, 78 Derngate, Northampton, runs until 29th April and is well worth a visit.

 

 

 

It is exactly 100 years since the newly married Mr and Mrs Bassett-Lowke moved into their “charming and up-to-date miniature residence” – no 78 Derngate, Northampton. It had been designed and re-modelled for them by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, the Scottish architect and designer who was so influential in European Art Nouveau. The house was a stunning showcase for the architect’s avant-garde designs – all the more impressive given the challenging backdrop of The First World War. It was his last major architectural project.

 

Events and workshops are being held in celebration of the Rennie Mackintosh’s achievements and style, see http://www.78derngate.org.uk/page121/index.html
