Episode 6

Putting Margaret Macdonald Back In The Picture

This month we are thrilled to be talking about the ‘genius’ (Mackintosh’s word) that was Margaret Macdonald. We warm up by delving into Celtic mythology- a large part of Macdonald’s inspiration- then discuss her career and how some male critics disparaged her influence on Mackintosh. We each nominate an amazing Macdonald artwork to investigate further and finish by taking a whirl around the history of maypoles, thanks to Macdonald’s incredible May Queen.
