Charles Rennie Mackintosh: Floral Watercolors & Textile Design

Over the past few weeks I’ve been really drawn to the watercolor studies of Scottish designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh (thanks for the heads up Nicolette!). Known mostly for his architecture and furniture design, I wasn’t aware of the work he created as a textile artist and water colourist. These pieces below are pulled from the […]

Interesting Debate on Women, Art & Having Kids

Art Info’s Response to Anne-Marie Slaughter’s recent controversial article in The Atlantic, “Why Women Still Can’t Have It All,” asks how this issue applies specifically to women with careers in art.
