How to Buy
This is a detail from the West Library Tower also featured in the catalogue. From the recessed keystone to the intricate stepped block-work Mackintoshs West Door shows great originality in its composition. Its monumental structure resembles a fortress and yet it is also has a modern feel. Work such as this has influenced a whole generation of architects including Frank Lloyd Wright. Because of his links with Europe and specifically Germany he became isolated from the establishment and was given little work after 1920. Only in the latter part of this century has his greatness been realised.
