The ‘Honesty’ mirror, made in 1896 by Frances Macdonald, marks a creative and innovative time for the development of The Glasgow Style. Frances, her older sister Margaret and their future husbands James Herbert McNair and Charles Rennie Mackintosh became known as ‘The Four,’ gaining a reputation for their distinctive style and highly symbolic work. Join Assistant Curator Hannah Willetts to learn more about the Honesty mirror, the craft involved in its making, and the eerie figures and symbolism that earned ‘The Four’ the nickname of the ‘Spook School’.
