RemarksIn 1917 Théo Van Rysselberghe was commissioned by Léon Guinotte to paint 17 works for his Villa 'Le Pachy' in Mariemont, of which his brother Octave Van Rysselberghe was the architect. The paintings are realized between 1920 and 1924. They represent views of the park (then 12.5 ha) and the water features around the Villa Magalone in Mazargues, Marseille. In 1947 Le Corbusier builds on a part of this domain his famous' Cité Radieuse 'and' Unité d'Habitation'.
