Land of Azure, inspiration for great masters of yesterday and today

The travel aspirations are sometimes guided by the roads of our past.

From the beginning of the 20th century eternal light of the Mediterranean attracts the great masters from around the world. The great impressionists such as Monet, Renoir lived here, other such as Bonnard, Chagall, Cocteau, Dufy, Léger, Picasso more fleetingly or in a more lasting way took attachment with the Cote named Azure.

Everyone marked the edges of our roads, our doors and our beaches, or at the feet of our surrounding hills, immortalized the beauty of our landscapes in their pictures.

The contemporary discovery of the Cote d’Azur can follow their itinerary because our region is full of treasures exhibited in its museums.

Land of yesterday but also of today that illustrates perfectly the Villa Arson school of national art where the Azureenne artistic inspiration continues. Tatiana Trouvé, Arnaud Marguet and Pascal Pinaut took their flight there.

This is a great invitation to travel by following the brush strokes of painters of yesterday and today by discovering The Maeght Foundation, The Picasso Museum, The National Museum Fernand Léger, The Jean Cocteau Museum, The Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, The Marc Chagall museum but also by walking along the narrow streets of Saint Paul de Vence or Mougins …

Holiday Inn Cannes offers to be your home port, refuge and haven of peace to preserve at the end of each day the images of these wonderful discoveries.

In perfect knowledge of our Azurean Earth we will guide you in order to facilitate the discovery on the road of these painters!
