Notes:
In 1902 Mackintosh and his wife Margaret Macdonald took part in the International Exhibition of Modern and Decorative Art at Turin. Two examples of this chair were shown in a room setting of their work which they called 'The Rose Boudoir'. The theme of the rose inspired the overall colour scheme of white, silver and pink, and underlay the decorative detailing of many of the pieces. The image shows the item on public display in The Mackintosh House at the Hunterian Art Gallery.
