"In the Footsteps of Cezanne and Van Gogh: Paintings of France's Provence Region" – Show Opens October 20th
The Marshall-LeKAE Gallery proudly announces its upcom corsa ing show featuring talented Arizona artist Neil Myers and opening 10/20/2011. The exhibition pays homage to a region of France the artist visited that ferrari is the inspiration for this particular series of works. During time spent in Aix-en-Provence, Neil studied French language as well as French literature and art. He also visited many sites of paintings by Cézanne, Van Gogh, and Gauguin. He confesses, "I even had a midday glass of beer at Van Gogh's "Night Café" in Arles. This Provence-inspired art show came to fruition as a result of Myers' immersion in French culture. Says the artist:
"I'm delighted to present this group of works inspired by Provence. The show is my homage to a region of France, legendary for its beauty and uniqueness, and for having inspired many of our favorite painters. In painting these, I had the masterworks of three artists primar audi ily in mind: Jean-Claude Quilici, Vincent van Gogh, and Paul Cézanne. Actually, I drifted between all three, and somewhere between the grandeur of the Mont Sainte Victoire, the intimacy of the Night Café, and the kaleidoscope deep blues of the Quilici skies in Provence, I found something of my own hand inspired by the region where I was fortunate to spend time and study some years ago. All colorists, like myself, owe something to those masters who worked in, and were inspired by, Provence." – Neil Myers
