Modern Print Monday: Mackintosh Rose & Teardrop

Rose & Tear Drop
in a scarf available today.
The original repeating print was
by Charles Rennie Mackintosh,
designed between 1915 and 1923.

Mackintosh's design for the Rose and Teardrop design was never produced during the teens when he painted several versions, but one could fill the hall closet today with neckties, scarves, placemats and card cases for sale now that it is out of copyright.

See his original painting here at the Hunterian Art Gallery website:

Roses without teardrops

Abstracted roses are often called Mackintosh Roses or Glasgow Roses.
