The art of Margaret Macdonald Mackintosh (Scottish, 1865–1933) is rooted in symbolism and Celtic imagery, and influenced by the Arts & Crafts movement. Among her best-known works are the gessoed panels created for Hous’hill, the Glasgow residence her husband, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, designed for art patron Catherine Cranston. The Four Queens, representing the four card suits, originally graced the walls of the Hous’hill card room and are now in the collection of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.
