Textile design: stylised dahlias

28 Mar
David Walsh

This textile design was produced by Charles Rennie Mackintosh during his time in Chelsea (1915-1923). It featured in the 78 Derngate Centenary Exhibition “Charles Rennie Mackintosh & The Great War“.

This design was produced during the years the Mackintoshes were living in London, 1915-1923. Mackintosh employed stylised plant forms and abstracted them in order to create a repeat patterns suitable for use in long lengths of fabric. Here geometric patterns are united with floral designs.
