Antibes, and the distant Alps, basking in a warm, richly colourful summer sunset.

A perfect painting to warm and  remind you of the glorious cote d’azur and characterful Antibes.

This exceptional painting combines a number of techniques, including abstract passages, spatula work and on closer inspection, fascinating fine detail so represents a fine example of the versatile artist’s work and sound investment.

Antibes was for centuries a French frontier town on the French boarder with Savoy, a merchant port and fishing village, fortified, vulnerable to raids by Arab pirates.

Antibes today is a vibrant town offering good shopping and with an active port and cove on the headland are mostly given over to yachts.

This larger work was developed from a study made on location, I still have that original ‘plien aire’ study.

You can find this view and a many a splendid sunset over bays of Cannes and Antibes by visiting the lighthouse on the peninsular between Antibes and Saint Jaun les Pines.

The site also offers unrivalled views of the not so distant Alps.
