Mackintosh, Margaret (1865–1933)

English-born artist . Name variations: Margaret MacDonald. Born Margaret MacDonald in Staffordshire, England, in 1865; died in 1933; sister of Frances MacDonald (1874–1921); studied at the Glasgow College of Art; married Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868–1928, a Scottish architect, designer and water-colorist), in 1900.

Known for her watercolors, stained glass, and book illustration, Margaret Mackintosh worked closely with her sister Frances MacDonald from 1894 until Margaret's marriage to Charles Rennie Mackintosh in 1900. From then on, Margaret collaborated with her husband, an influential architect, designer, watercolorist, and exponent of Art Nouveau, on much of his work, especially in textile design. Margaret Mackintosh exhibited widely on the Continent and won the Diploma of Honor at the Turin International Exhibition in 1902. Following the Mackintoshes' move to London from Glasgow, Margaret's work as a painter supported them, as Charles' career tapered off in his later years.

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
