David DELLEPIANE Côte d'Azur 1910

An understudy of Chéret, David Dellepiane returned from Paris to his childhood home of Marseilles,
where he took fine advantage of the Provençal light to create dreamy Impressionist portraits of the Côte d'Azur.
This, one of his most famous posters for the region, sees him emulating Renoir and Sisley – but on the far right,
the lady with the parasol is rendered with a nod to British Modernism. Two other posters, for Antibes and Grasse,
have nearly the same composition: just a slight difference in the trees, and in the artistic mode of presentation.
