Landscapes of lights, painters of the South

Martigues - Peinture - April 9 at 6 p.m. - Free

Event cancelled:Coronavirus

By Jean-Baptiste Pisano, professor of art history at the University of Nice.

Settled between the Spanish border and the Riviera, painters invented the Midi from the second half of the 19th century.
If their landscapes reveal their artistic personality, the diversity of styles nevertheless reveals the importance of the discovery of light, which modifies their gaze, and feeds the imagination of each of them.

The pictorial translation of maritime atmospheres, or grasping as close as possible to the motif can be appreciated in a permanent dialogue between light and shade.
The particular beauty of the Mediterranean country is an invitation to travel to the heart of pictorial modernity, impressionism, fauvism ... to Matisse and Bonnard.
