DescriptionBanner. Designed in 1900 by Charles Rennie Mackintosh (Scottish, 1868-1928) and Margaret MacDonald (Scottish, 1865-1933). Made in 1902, Glasgow, Scotland. Produced for the Scottish section, International Exhibition of Modern Decorative Art, Turin, Italy, 1902. Stencilled linen. This banner, one of four, was hung adjacent to a room setting “The Rose Boudoir”, designed by Mackintosh for the Scottish section of the 1902 Turin International Exhibition of Decorative Art. His participation in this event with his wife Margaret MacDonald is testimony to their growing international reputation. Mackintosh and his wife designed the panels depicting stylized female figures holding roses (a favourite decorative device of the Mackintoshes) whose delicate colours reflect the subtle tonalities found in the interiors they designed together.
