Menton

About this artwork

In 1947 Redpath travelled to Menton on the French Riviera, where she made numerous sketches and oil studies. Once back in Scotland, the studies she made during her holiday in Menton were used to create numerous paintings including this one and ‘Window in Menton’ (1948), which featured her daughter in law Eileen in the foreground. Menton was only 20 miles from Cap Ferrat, where Redpath had lived with her family in the 1920s before returning to Scotland in 1934 and this atmospheric painting is suggestive of the artist’s familiarity with the place.
