Redpath spent some 14 years living in France following her marriage in 1920 to James Michie, an architect designing cemeteries on the Western Front for the War Graves Commission. This painting belongs to a later period in her life when she was based in Edinburgh but made regular visits abroad. Staying with friends in the South of France in 1948, she drew three cacti on the ledge of an open window. On her return home she combined this image with two others: the old town of Menton as seen across the valley and, quietly seated at a table, the girl who was to become the wife of her youngest son, the painter David Michie. Redpath exhibited 'Window in Menton' at the Royal Academy in 1950. This painting was one of her favourite pictures which she sold only reluctantly in 1963 to the pianist Yonty Solomon.
