Debbie writes:

quoting My favorite "Designing Woman" has to be Margaret MacDonald Mackintosh, wife of famed "Arts and Crafts" designer, Rennie Macintosh. end quote

Although best known for her large gesso panels, she was equally at home in such mediums as watercolors, graphics, metalwork and textiles. Now somewhat eclipsed by her husband, in her time she was well-known and a major influence on such people as Gustav Klimt and Josef Hoffmann. Her own husband admitted "Margaret is half if not three-quarters of all my work..." and "Margaret has genius, I have only talent."
