The Museums of the French Riviera: on the Trail of the Great Artists
Abstract:The two words ‘French Riviera’ suggest leisurely bathes and strolls in the sunshine, the flapping sails of a two-masted yacht on the blue waves of the Mediterranean, a place of dreams. But for tourists willing, between sunbathing and cocktails, to explore its many charms, the Riviera has much else to offer. Far off the beaten track they will find a completely different Riviera, following the footsteps of the great artists who made the dazzling ‘season’ of the Riviera a time for painting. Maïté Roux, a French freelance journalist, leads us on this voyage of discovery.
