Hunterian Art Gallery, University of Glasgow - East Anglia and Devon Sketchbook

Oast house, Cluddingstone, Kent

This sketchbook record trips to England between 1897 and 1914: to Norfolk, most probably in 1897 (Cawston, Salle, Swanton Abbott, Westwick, Worstead and two, after 1906, of Norwich; Kent and Sussex in 1909 (Cowden, Groombridge, Withyham); and Kent again in 1910 (Chiddingstone, Hever, Leigh, Penshurst). The highlight are the studies of Chiddingstone's beautiful half-timbered main street. Two pages have drawings of Walberswick, Suffolk, in 1914; Mackintosh and Margaret Macdonald lived there for 15 months from 1914. There are also designs for various projects, including Miss Cranston's tea rooms and her home, Hous'hill, Nitshill, Glasgow; 78 Derngate for W.J. Bassett-Lowke; and, intriguingly, for a new village square near Killearn, Stirlingshire.
