This is a digitally printed image of the original, which is part of the extensive collection of the Estate of Charles Rennie Mackintosh at the Hunterian.
Notes about the original: In the months Mackintosh spent at Walberswick, between 1914 and 1915, he produced over 40 flower drawings for publication or exhibition on the continent; plans curtailed by the outbreak of war. A related drawing d.1914, was sold at Sotheby's Belgravia, 4.07.1980 (301). Larkspur (Consolida ambigua) is a commonly cultivated hardy annual. It grows wild in the Mediterranean region and can reach a height of over 3 feet (1 metre).

Note on print colours. The background colours of prints in this range vary. This is due to the different papers on which they were executed, and the aging process since their creation. In every instance we try to ensure that the colours of the drawings are as close to the originals as technically possible.
