mackintosh watercolour paintings

The legacy of Charles Rennie Mackintosh in Roussillon are his watercolours.

The Mackintosh Trail in Roussillon shows reproductions in situ at the places where they were painted.

The Trail consists of 30 reproductions of Mackintosh's watercolours placed in situ in the valleys of the Tech and the Têt and on the Côte Vermielle.

Mackintosh redesigned landscapes and developed a unique style which towards the end was approaching surrealism. Comparing the real landscape side by side with Mackintosh's interpretation, is a fascinating insight into seeing the world through the eyes of the artist

Mackintosh picked his spots by finding somewhere that would protect him from the wind with a suitable rock to sit upon - so these location are usually not difficult to identify.

The Mackintosh trail and the series of 30 markers, each with a reproduction of the painting that Mackintosh painted, provides a focus for discovering the stunning scenery of the Pyrénées Orientales.
