Artists and Their Museums on the Riviera

Artists and Their Museums on the Riviera Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Take a delightful tour along the French Riviera, home to an astounding number of the 20th century's greatest artists. This compact, fully illustrated guidebook provides a glimpse into the lives of Chagall, Cocteau, Leger, Matisse, Picasso, and Renoir, among others, and visits the museums — many close to where the artists lived — that display their work and that of their contemporaries.

Organized geographically, the book ventures off the well-worn paths of La Croisette in Cannes and the Promenade des Anglais in Nice to show off the Riviera as Bonnard, Braque, Dufy, Modigliani, Picabia, and Soutine discovered it — and, in many cases, each other. Artists and Their Museums on the Riviera presents 28 sites and their collections, recounts anecdotes about the artists and the development of their museums, and includes a map, addresses, phone numbers, as well as hours and days of admission — everything an energetic voyager or enthusiastic armchair traveler needs to ensure many memorable moments.

Synopsis:

The French Riviera has been home to a remarkable number of the 20th century's great artists. Organized geographically, this is a guide to 28 sites and their collections, and relates anecdotes about the artists and the development of their museums. Practical details for visitors are included.

Synopsis:

Although the Riviera stretches for a mere eighty miles along the French coast of the Mediterranean from Menton to Saint-Tropez, during the first three-quarters of the twentieth century it was home to an astounding array of European artists - including Auguste Renoir, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Fernand Leger, Marc Chagall, and Jean Cocteau, among others - whose lives and work are celebrated in numerous museums and art sites in this region of intense natural beauty. Artists and Their Museums on the Riviera focuses on 28 of these museums, highlighting both museum collections and the artists' personal stories, while providing all the necessary information an energetic voyager or enthusiastic armchair traveler needs to ensure a series of memorable visits.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 216-220) and index.
