Photographs

A collection of photographs and negatives taken by George Oliver dating from 1948-1990 (apart from two dated c1897). George arranged his photographs into folders by approximate subject matter and gave each folder a title. This has been reflected in the catalogue with the folder titles in the catalogue being the exact titles George used. The folders have been arranged by subject matter where possible. There are exceptions to the above. Folders DC 066/2/20 and DC 066/2/86 have not been given a title by George and have been catalogued as 'Untitled'. There are exceptions to this with DC 066/2/78 containing photographs taken by Cordelia Oliver as they date from after George's death. As a result of the Mackintosh Building fire in 2014, folders DC 066/2/87, DC 066/2/88 and DC 066/2/89 contain photographs that have been rehoused since their deposit and are likely to have been taken out of other folders. It is not clear from which folders these photographs came originally, so they have been catalogued separately with their titles reflecting the subject matter of the photographs they contain.

Oliver, George

    dear Sir

I have just returned from London where I have been for a few days, else I should have answered your kind letter sooner. I shall be very happy to receive the balance which you tell me is in your hands, of the sum subscribed for the portrait of Bailie Moir [?] which I painted. I know there was some difficulty in getting up the money at last. Horatio McCulloch was my very intimate friend and I knew R.M., Cooper and Bill Mason and I.M. Donald, very well. Mason was a nephew of the Kembles, his mother being a sister of the great Mrs Siddons. He was a grand heavy looking fellow, but unfortunately took to the bottle and went to the D 1. The last time I saw him was in Tottenham Court road standing against a lampost haranguing a lot of little boys who were evidently bent on mischievous fun with the drunk man, but were awed by the grand Caricature [?] like style of poor Bill. I believe he is dead long ago.

I should very much like to see the Scrap books, and also the portrait of Allan Ramsay, is it Ramsay the father -the Pact [?] s Ramsay the son, the portrait painting.

The first time I'm in Glasgow I'll endeavour to let you know, and perhaps you will kindly show them to me.
Believe me, very truly yours...

Italian Sketchbook

This sketchbook consists of 81 pages of sketches made by Charles Rennie Mackintosh during his trip to Italy in 1891 funded by his Greek Thomson travelling scholarship prize money. The subjects he sketched are mainly architectural, with the one he felt to be most impressive being labelled 'A Caution'. Each sketch is labelled with the name of the city or town in which it was sketched. In 1890 Mackintosh won the Alexander 'Greek' Thomson Travelling Scholarship with a design for a public hall, which enabled him to take an extensive tour abroad from February to July 1891. He left Glasgow for London on 21 March 1891, sailing from Tilbury on the Thames on 27 March and arriving in Naples on 5 April. He then visited Palermo in Sicily, Rome, Orvieto, Siena, Florence, Pisa, Pistoia, Bologna, Ravenna, Ferrara, Venice, Padua, and Vicenza, arriving in Verona on 10 June 1891. The Sketchbook contains drawings from the later part of Mackintosh's tour, from 10th June, with sketches, mostly of architectural and sculptural details, beginning with Verona. It covers Verona (11-14 June); Mantua (14 June); Cremona (14-15 June); Brescia (16 June); Bergamo (17 June); Lecco (18 June); Cadenabbia and Lake Como (19-25 June); Como (26-27 June); Milan (28 June-6 July); Pavia (7 July-?); Certosa di Pavia (probably several days around 12 July); Paris and Chateau d'Ecouen (late July?); Antwerp (late July? - briefly visited on his return journey). It also contains several pages of designs for the Glasgow Art Club (1892-3) and the Glasgow Herald Building (1893-5). The drawings themselves are almost all pencil sketches, some of which are now quite faint.
