Details

Nicola’s proud peacock, fans his tail in full display, while his red plume is raised in a silent salute to the great designer Mackintosh was. Tea-rooms were a particularly Glaswegian phenomenon at the turn of the century. These establishments were more extensive than their name suggests. They included tea-rooms, luncheon rooms for men and women, general luncheon rooms, dinner rooms, billiard rooms and smoking rooms.

They provided Mackintosh with the opportunity for experimenting in design which was not always possible in his normal interior commissions. Of all Mackintosh’s decorative work nothing brought him greater fame than these remarkable interiors; indeed, few of his projects created greater interest at home and abroad.Commissioned to share with George Walton the decoration of both the Buchanan Street Tea rooms and the Argyle Street premises, by 1901 he had sole professional control over the tea-room projects.

The Peacock Study for a mural decoration was created in 1897-1898. It adorned the walls of the luncheon room where stylised trees and peacock motifs were used throughout.
