About the work
Mackintosh lived with his wife Margaret in Port Vendres from 1923 after having given up architecture and design. Here he began to paint a series of watercolours including flower studies and port scenes. However the larger landscapes are perhaps the most significant and appealing of his works from this period.
Meticulously executed with striking compositions these paintings render their scenes with almost architectural precision. The absence of people and the celebration of man made and natural structures add to the effect. Everywhere the brightness of the southern sun brings a warm glow to the scenes. After the gloom of post-war London these days in Port Vendres must have brought welcome respite for the couple.
The Mackintoshes returned to London in 1927 so that Charles could receive treatment for an illness to which sadly in December 1928 he finally succumbed. His ashes were scattered in Port Vendres in keeping with his final wishes. “The Little Bay” is a poignant and beautiful reminder of Mackintosh’s genius.
This print is made with kind permission, directly from the original work held in the Mackintosh collection of The University of Glasgow.
