San Remo, at the Jean-François Cazeau Gallery an exhibition on landscape from the 20th century to the present day

From June 29 to September 29, 2019, the Cazeau Gallery in San Remo is hosting the exhibition 'Landscapes' which investigates the evolution of landscape from the 20th century to the present.

Opening Saturday, June 29, at the Jean-François Cazeau Gallery in San Remo, Via Giacomo Matteotti 7, is the exhibition Landscapes, a tribute to landscape painting and its evolution during the 20th century, when progressively naturalistic references were lost until they dissolved completely into the inner landscapes of contemporary artists.

Witnessing this evolution, will be the works of artists such as Louis Hayet, Pablo Picasso, Hermine David, Afro, Lynn Chadwick, André Masson, but also contemporary artists such as Sean Scully, Ian Davenport, Samuel De Gunzburg, and Nicolas Lefeuvre, a French artist and former creative director of Chanel in Tokyo who is collaborating for the first time with the Cazeau Gallery and bringing to the exhibition a selection of eleven works.

The appeal to the theme of landscape, so dear to the masters of late 19th-century en plein air painting, stems from the exhibitions that the Riviera dei Fiori is dedicating to Claude Monet, respectively at the Doria Castle in Dolceacqua and Villa Regina Margherita in Bordighera. Considered one of the founders ofImpressionism, Monet constantly investigated the theme of landscape, reproposing it in endless variations and making it the absolute protagonist of his canvases. He stayed precisely in Bordighera in the late 19th century, first on a trip with his friend Renoir and then alone, where he was able to paint various views of the coastal town.

The opening of Landscapes, will also be an occasion to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the opening of Cazeau’s Paris gallery, which opened in 2009 in the Marais district, on rue Sainte Anastase, a short walk from the Picasso Museum. For more than 25 years in the collecting market, its founder Jean-François Cazeau and partner Raphael Salvadori Tecucianu, decided to focus onItaly and in particular Liguria,opening the Sanremo gallery last year. The reason for this choice is the gallery’s well-established presence in fairs and exhibitions in the south of France and Italy.

Among the most important artists exhibited are names such as Armand Guillaumin, Auguste Herbin, Hans Hartung, Pablo Picasso, Amedeo Modigliani, Cèsar and Alberto and Diego Giacometti. The target audience is collectors of the Impressionist and Modern Masters, a market that continues to grow, as confirmed by the latest record set last May 14 by Sotheby’s New York with one of Claude Monet’s famous compositions depicting Haystacks selling for $110 million.
