About

'Palace of the Mediterranean' / 'Palais de la Méditerranée', oil on canvas, by Yvon Grac (1970s-80s). Exploding in vivacious colour, the artist depicts ice cream sellers on the famous Promenade des Anglais, along Nice's waterfront. Underneath the bright blue Provençal sky strollers and bathers enjoy this little slice of summer paradise. The Palais de la Méditerranée figures prominently in the artwork. It was built in 1929 by architects Charles and Marcel Dalmas for American millionaire Frank Jay Gould. According to Insight Guides, it "epitomised 1930s glamour with a casino, theatre, restaurant and cocktail bar." It was originally a major centre for the arts in Nice, holding both national and international exhibitions. Today its façade is a protected monument of France and operates as a luxury hotel. The painting is in good vintage condition and has been newly framed with linen slip. It is signed by the artist in the lower left hand corner. Please view the many photos of the work to accompany this listing. Upon request a video will be provided. About the Artist: Yvon Grac, born in 1945 in Nice, France, where he continues to reside. He is a modern, figurative painter best known for his joyful artworks using dramatic colour to express himself in the tradition of the Provençal School of artists. His subjects include intimate scenes, sumptuous bouquets, still lifes and landscapes of the French Côtes d'Azur. His artwork has been recognised internationally and the artist awarded a French knighthood, or Chevalier of Arts and Letters. Grac's paintings appear in many collections both in France and abroad as well as in the museum of Nice and several other Provençal cities.
