Margaret McDonald Makintosh was an English-born artist who worked in Scotland, and whose design work became one of the defining features of the Glasgow Style during the 1890s - 1900s.
She began collaborating with her sister Frances and their innovative work was inspired by Celtic imagery, literature, symbolism, folklore and the famous Gustav Klimt.
She was married to Charles Mackintosh which is commonly recognized as Scotland's most famous architect. Margaret Macdonald Mackintosh was somewhat marginalised in comparison. Yet she was celebrated in her time by many of her peers, including her husband who once wrote in a letter to her, "Remember, you are half if not three-quarters in all my architectural work ..."; and reportedly "Margaret has genius, I have only talent."
