Footnotes

  • SCARCE PORTFOLIO OF SECESSIONIST ARCHITECTURE. In December 1900, Alexander's Koch's Zeitschrift für Innendekoration announced a competition for designs for a "Haus eines Kunstfreundes" ("House for an art-lover"). Mackintosh had exhibited at the Vienna Secession in 1900, and although his submission for this competition was incomplete at the time entries closed, he was awarded a special prize nonetheless. There was no first prize, but Scott won second prize and Bauer shared third place with two other architects. Mackintosh's house was eventually realized in 1999, in modified form, at Bellahouston Park in Glasgow.
