Escape with Artscapes UK to the south of France. Expect blue sea, big sky, and sunlight rich as honey – no wonder artists have been drawn to the French Riviera.
This is a journey with Annabel Howard. In this talk we’ll be roaming the coast in the footsteps of Cezanne, Van Gogh, Picasso, and Matisse. Their bright colours and languid lines will transport us to the heady pleasures of the Mediterranean where we’ll relish the vision and commitment of Cezanne, the soul of Van Gogh, the humour and insight of Picasso, and the optimism and joie de vivre of Matisse – all teased out and magnified by the places they found and enjoyed on the Côte d’Azur.
Before the event, you will receive an introductory film and a beautiful hand-delivered postcard with Annabel’s personal recommendations for food, drink, music, and literature to compliment the talk. After the event, you will also receive a bonus film to dive into an extra work of art not covered in the talk.
“The whole future of art is to be found in the South of France”
– Vincent Van Gogh
