Arty Farty Friday - Another Destructive Fire in the famous Glasgow School of Art

Glasgow fire: Art school's Mackintosh building extensively damaged

I was shocked, and very sad to read of the dreadful fire reported in the above piece, some days ago. It is the second destructive fire in this famous building in recent years, reconstruction from the last one was only recently completed.

Charles Rennie Mackintosh's designs have been a longtime favourite of mine.
Here are links to two earlier posts about him:
From 2009 - a joint post also features Frank Lloyd Wright.

From 2014 - the post also features Charles' wife, Margaret MacDonald Mackintosh.

Sad to see this yet again. Seems haunted.

Wisewebwoman ~ Yes - or cursed - though I can't imagine why, because it has always been held in high esteem.
