Design for a country mansion: elevations

AntH s. and inscr. t.l. "A COUNTRY MANSION / DESIGNED BY CHARLES RENNIE MACKINTOSH" DES MACKINTOSH, Charles Rennie; (Scottish; 1868-1928) This project could be an alternative proposal for the House for an Art Lover competition or a speculative scheme akin to Mackintosh's Country Cottage and Town House projects. Although damaged the drawing is a fine example of Mackintosh's graphic and architectural style at the turn of the century, realised on a grander scale than he was ever able to put into practice.
