Marco Livingstone writes 'The image is based largely on a black and white photograph of a villa called 'La Bastide des Pins', illustrated in E. Bellini, Villas Méditerranées (Paris: Editions Charles Massin, n.d., p. 36, although some elememts have been borrowed from other photographs in this book and the title is from another villa reproduced on p. 47, 'Face á la Mer'. The book, presumably aimed at architects or at prospective owners of holiday homes, appealed to Caulfield because it was 'a bit like Hollywood's concept of Mediterranean architecture'. The tree was painted from a pencil drawing which Caulfield made outside his studio in Cornwall Crescent, near Ladbroke Grove' (see op. cit. p. 35).
