8. A Southern Port
Kelvingrove Art Gallery
Pencil and watercolour
Mackintosh viewed this Southern coastal scene from the Hotel du Commerce, where he captured the landmarks of the eighteenth century fortifications of Fort Mailly, Sidi Ferruch to the right and the rue du Soleil to the left.
The eye is drawn towards the open sea in the distance. Lowering the level of the quay affords us a better view.
