The lush landscape and subtle quality of light seduced artists in droves to visit the French Riviera. From Italian Masters to Postimpressionists, painters traveled throughout the ages to the Cote d’Azur in search of the ideal landscape. Legendary canvas virtuosos like Monet, Seurat, and van Gogh attempted to capture the play of sun and shadow of Nice, Cannes, Menton, and Antibes. While painting the luminescent vistas they fell permanently for the sultry ambience of these idyllic towns. Driving down twisting cliff roads, wending through historic villages, and touring ancient Roman ruins reveals the limpid panorama of the terrain and the enchanting lifestyle of the Riviera. Let the laid back character of the Cote d’Azur overtake your senses as you uncover the bewitching allure of the region’s translucent air in “French Riviera: Artist’s Paradise.”

Love the photos. Makes me want to travel there now.
Very solid ebook. Interesting to discover about the artists and the places they loved to paint. I thought the photos were excellent quality and made me want to travel to the French Riviera. I especially liked the photo comparisons made between what the artists saw in the past and how the places look today. Good book.
