Description

The Provence is a Painting

What makes this particular souvenir from France appealing is its wonderful use of color to connote a sense of quaint charm. And it makes us think of the many painters that not only lived in this region but also were inspired by its landscape and its unique light.

For example, Cezanne painted almost all his work in the Provence. Through his paintings, we get to know what life was like in the second half of the Nineteenth century. Van Goh and Auguste Renoir also rendered the region's landscape in their own characteristic styles, the latter even built a house which is nowadays a museum. Henry Matisse's paintings depict quite unknown settings that the curious travelers may find in the Provence.

Film in The Provence

Much as painters have painted Provence, filmmakers have contributed their share in finding inspiration in the exquisite landscape of this French region. For example, Jean Renoir filmed his Chronicle of a Summer in its Paradisiac beaches. Other films also shot there include Jean de Florette and A Good Year, which strives to show the exquisite landscape of the Provence.

The Provence is also important to film for historic reasons as well. Here The Lumiere Brothers projected, for the first time in the history of film, L'Arrivee d'un train en

gare de La Ciotat, This film is the first film ever made. Only fifty second long, it established the coming of a new media which impacted the centuries to follow. For these reasons, why not add this magnet souvenir oyur collection,
