Posts Tagged ‘Carriers et Lumieres’

Since I have posted today something happening at Christmas, I thought I might as well keep going and give us all something to look forward to in the Spring.  The new show at the Carrières de Lumières at Les Baux will be Voyages en Méditerranée.

It will be celebrating the Mediterranean region as a source of inspiration for painters during the second half of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th – Impressionists, Fauves, Pointillistes and Cubists.  The whole French coast from Italy along to Spain fascinated these artists and the show will shine up images of Antibes, Cagnes, Collioure, L’Estaque and St Tropez.  The illustration here is Monet’s ‘Lemon Trees at Bordighera’ from 1884.

The son-et-lumiere shows at this old quarry are quite spectacular and really lend themselves to colourful paintings.  The theme is designed to tie in with the MP2013 Year of Culture.

It starts on 8th March and runs to 5th January 2014.  Some brightness to look forward to on this dark and rainy November day!
