A book about his life has been published by Lund Humphries and is available on Amazon in France.

Called Rudolph Ihlee:The Road to Collioure, it was written by James Trollope who has had a house in Les Aspres for more than 25 years.

Ihlees long stay in Collioure was the happiest period of his life. He met his wife during a grape harvest, encouraged Charles Rennie Mackintosh to settle nearby and produced some wonderful work,said James.
