Artwork sold for world record price

A decorated panel set a world record for the sale of a Scottish artwork.
The White Rose and the Red Rose, by Margaret Macdonald Mackintosh, wife of celebrated Glasgow designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh , was sold at auction for £1.7m.
Another panel by the same artist, The Heart of the Rose, was also sold in the same auction at Christie’s in London and fetched £490,900.The panels were first displayed in 1902.
The person who bought the White Rose and the Red Rose panel was said to be a private US buyer.
It was decorated with paint and jewelled gesso, a type of plaster.
The work was a collaboration between Macdonald Mackintosh and her husband.
The pair cooperated in many artistic enterprises, with the wife often creating works for the interiors of her husband’s designs.
