Margaret MacDonald – the big picture
Scottish artist who lived from 1864-1933 and who, through her art, saw houses as a synthesis of work: construction, furnishings, paintings and even clothing. For MacDonald and other Art Nouveau/modernist artists, craftsmanship played a significant role in art. Evelina Dovsten discovered MacDonald while working in Scotland. It was a revolutionary art experience that left clear traces in Dovsten’s work, such as accentuated blackness and sharp lines in geometric patterns.
