La Bonne Mère was the local name for the thirty-foot gilded statue of the virgin which rises from the top of Notre Dame de la Garde, the basilica in the background of the present work. The view is taken from the north bank of the old harbor of Marseille, which afforded one of the best perspectives of the steep limestone banks opposite. Signac had an affinity for the majestic and towering coastal architecture of La Rochelle, Mont Saint-Michel, Constantinople and Marseille, where the topography allowed him to build a sense of crescendo into his compositions. An oil painting of this vista dating from the previous year is in the collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York (see fig. 1).
