MoMA Visit

The exhibition at MoMA of Pissarro and Cezanne paintings is spectacular.

And while you are there, look at the late 19th and 20th century furniture. What Charles Rennie Mackintosh understood and which I don’t credit many other architect designers since that time as understanding, is how important vertical line is in creation. His chair and his poster at MoMA both demonstrate this and they are inspiring designs even though the chair will never be comfortable other than as a perch.

This detail alone, at least for me, makes him stand out from his peers and successors.
