The Mackintosh Festival
Charles Rennie Mackintosh had a lifelong connection with Glasgow Cathedral. As a young man living in Dennistoun, he sketched details of the Cathedral and its surroundings, and he was involved in redesigning the chancel, working with John Honeyman. This exhibition will also show how Mackintosh used Glasgow Cathedral as the template for his submitted design for Liverpool Cathedral. Selected sketches and photographs will be displayed, in this exhibition curated by Dr James Macaulay, a world authority on Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
