------ Robin CRICHTON
Robin Crichton, President of the Association CRM en Roussillon, follows in Mackintosh’s footsteps, rediscovering as he does so the culture and beauty of the region and how it influenced Mackintosh’s painting. Crichton’s own love of Roussillon shines through, and his elegiac prose sits in perfect harmony with Mackintosh’s splendid paintings.
THE BOOK :
In 1923, Charles Rennie Mackintosh and his wife Margaret Macdonald went on holiday to Roussillon, in the South of France, to rest and recuperate. Her health was poor and as an architect and designer he had become outmoded. They were enchanted.
The holiday became a permanent stay and Mackintosh rapidly developed his talents as an artist. They spent the last and possibly the happiest years of their life together in an earthly paradise.
