These landscape marked their brushes the beauty still beautiful, that
some call Eden Menton and Country Mentonnais.
The collectors of the time with them and their heirs we offer to share the vision
and through it, the story of artists out of the ordinary for that Menton, was a stopover in
their hectic life of art and travel. Stop choice if it is, port and destination
for others who decided to settle there.
Thanks to his devotees at the top of their art, we are rediscovering Menton, its edges Sea crude
natural, campaigns mingling colors and poems, his love of shepherds bearing fruit,
its fishermen, its traders. A short little people, a lifetime impression of serenity,
gentle and natural.
Thank you for collectors to share with the public these precious treasures, testimony of a century
History of Menton and Menton, testimony of a time past, that beauty has ties
a haven eternal.
