“Using his life as a line of construction for this story, the exhibition sets out the breadth of his vision of a world in the throes of transformation. It first presents an intimate portrait of the man – his origins, training, and cultural and artistic milieu – up to the point when, with all those he involves thereafter, he brings about a veritable revolution of museums.

The exhibition aims to draw a portrait of the man, Georges Henri Rivière, who embodies in himself alone some of the most significant aspects of 20th century culture. It presents some 600 documents and items (works of Modern Art, popular arts objects, ethnographic objects, photos, sculptures, drawings, audiovisual archives, etc.) sourced from the Centre Pompidou, the musée du quai Branly-Jacques Chirac, the musée d’Orsay, the Archives nationales and principally from the Mucem, which preserves the diverse and important collections of the musée des Arts et Traditions populaires.”

A little look back at rosé wine’s history!2018/11/16

Rosé is the oldest-known wine and first appeared on Mediterranean shores well over a thousand years ago.

The study of Greek and Egyptian representations shows that pale wines resembling rosés were elaborated from crushed or pressed grapes, without maceration (which is the basis of red wine).

Monks were also fans of this ‘vinum clarum’, the ancestor of Bordeaux’s Clairet rosé.
The Renaissance too had a taste for this wine that was neither white nor red, as reflected in the details of carafes and glasses shown in Flemish and Dutch paintings.

Reds only started to gain ground over rosés in the 18th century. After the phylloxera crisis, the vineyards were replanted with red grape varieties and although rosés had reigned over the wine world for centuries, tastes switched very clearly to red.
Rosé wine fell more or less into disrepute on the wine market, and has only won recognition again fairly recently.

Consumption has tripled in the last 20 years and represented one-third of all wine consumption in 2013. Friendly-priced, thirst-quenching, varied, easy and pretty, rosé has brought a wind of change to our dinner tables!

Art’s visit in Provence: Per Kirkeby – Matter is light at Château LaCoste2018/11/15

Per Kirkeby – Matter is light

“Château La Coste and Michael Werner Gallery are pleased to present Matter is Light, an exhibition of paintings and sculptures by Danish artist Per Kirkeby. Matter is Light also inaugurates a new permanent outdoor sculpture, Brick Labyrinth, that will be installed on the grounds of Château La Coste. Conceived in 2009, Brick Labyrinth is the artist’s last completed sculpture: Kirkeby died in May this year, shortly before seeing its installation at La Coste completed. Matter is Light aims to celebrate the life and legacy of this major figure in European art.

The foundational importance of the natural sciences to Kirkeby’s art is well established: the artist traveled extensively in the Arctic and Greenland in the early 1960s while working towards his master’s degree in geology. Equally important to his development as a painter and sculptor are the many experiments with architecture and performance Kirkeby carried out during his student days and into the 1970s.”

“Authentic and mystical Sainte-Baume.
 
Close to the Mediterranean Sea and not far from the Alps, the Saint-Baum Massif benefits from a triple bioclimatic and biogeographic influence (Mediterranean, steppe and mountain) which offers an abundance of water, a rare and precious element in Lower-Provence.
45192610_627751100972647_2032690274668380160_n(1)
 
The Sainte-Baume Massif is an imposing limestone massif that rises up to an altitude of 1148 meters. It is home to several famous landmarks: the ancient forest of Sainte Baume, the grotto of Mary Magdalene and its monastery, the Saint Pilon, and the path of Roys (Kings). It’s in the surroundings of this natural setting that we invite you to discover a selection of wine-growing addresses, hiking trails and the Musée des Gueules Rouges. Immerse yourself into the heart of nature and the history of Provence Verte. During your stay in Provence Verte, don’t miss its’ seven other remarkable sites: the Gorges du Verdon, the Sainte-Victoire Mountain, the Basilica of Saint-Maximin, the village of Cotignac and its rock, the beach of Vallon Sourn, the Barjols’ fountains circuit and the medieval town of Brignoles.”
