The Walker Art Gallery is an art gallery in Liverpool which houses beautiful paintings, sculptures and decorative artworks from the 13th century to the present day. As one of the National Museums in Liverpool, it is one of the largest art collections in England, outside London. It is promoted as “the National Gallery of the North” because it is not a local or regional gallery but is part of the national museums and galleries administered directly from central government funds.
Charles Rennie Mackintosh (Glasgow, 1868 | London, 1928) was a Scottish architect, designer, water colorist and artist. His artistic approach had much in common with European Symbolism. His work, alongside that of his wife Margaret Macdonald, was influential on European design movements such as Art Nouveau and Secessionism and praised by great modernists such as Josef Hoffmann.
