Welcome to the Charles Rennie Mackintosh Society.

The Moon and The Four by Roger Billcliffe

We are delighted to have Roger Billcliffe give another talk at Queen’s Cross. The Moon has been a major influence on artists, musicians and poets throughout the centuries. A young Charles Rennie Mackintosh was no different; in 1892 he created his first symbolist watercolour, The Harvest Moon. This depicts the annual phenomenon, when the first full moon is closest to the autumnal equinox or the time of year when crops are traditionally harvested. The Harvest Moon was a major landmark for Mackintosh and certainly a catalyst for The Four.

Monday 21 May at 18.00
Definitely not to be missed!

Tickets for the event cost £7.50 and include refreshments and can booked by phone on 0141 946 6600 or online at mackintosh/eventbrite

Mackintosh Queen's Cross

The only church designed by Mackintosh to be built and now the Society's International headquarters. Magnificent stained glass and exceptional relief carving on wood and stonework are highlights of the interior where light and space are used to dramatic effect. Mackintosh Queen's Cross has an excellent library and the shop stocks an extensive range of Mackintosh books and gifts.
