LITTLE PROMENADE AZURE LANDSCAPES
By Zoran Slavic
Nice, despite its Mediterranean-Latin seductiveness, the beauty of their environ ment that provokes the senses and memory, is like a city that is destined to people from his provisionally leave. And the return. As a famous work. But this also applies to ordinary tourists!
As I walked trace Scott Fitzgerald, I felt at times like Gatsby. Cruising the area adjoining the Côte d'Azur: Mougins, Grass, Saint-Paul de Vence. And San Rafael, of course. In which Scott Fitzgerald, with Zelda, wintered. And all the time we Nica in the nostrils. Its colors, smells, meaning. Sound and taste of lavender and sunset. While we soar greenery, the sky above us flows directly into the azure sea. And we are on a daily basis as to "stumble" on Picasso. It is the uniqueness of their fate in France: History and great artistic heritage, from textbooks, waiting for us around every corner.
In the small town of Mougins, seeking traces of Picasso, I find the Market Women, Marie Leoneli. In one early afternoon, after the rain, we arrived in Mougins, from Cannes, with the sole intent to experience an environment that is more 1938th attracted a great painter. By the following itinerary Fitzgerald. Asking for the house where Picasso lived and painted in a conversation with Ms. Leoneli Market Women of Italian origin, we found out that he was her customer. She showed us a notebook with his orders, the fact of his former wife. She remembered that in Mougins with Picasso were often and actress Lucia Bose, choreographer Serge Lifar and toreador Dominguez. And here, as guests of the great painter came Getruda Stein, Apollinaire, Matis ... artists who are mentioned in this stories about the Fitzgerald residence on Azure. Otherwise, Picasso died in Mougins near. In a villa with 35 rooms!? As if he was a relative of Salvador Dali! Then, from a small Mougins, we go to San Rafael. Where is the American novelist Fitzgerald just 1922nd wrote "Tender is the Night", all looking in Juan les Pins adjacent to the Cote d'Azur, which was not as prestigious as it is today. Which at the time, between the world wars, visited "lost generation." In what was and Hemingway. Among the novel "A Farewell to Arms" and "The Sun Also Rises." This writer is, in fact, Gertrude Stein traveled to this part of Europe classy.
We then went to town Saint-Paul de Vence. Here, in Saint-Paul de Vence, in half of the planned route to the South of France, a small town in the inland the Mediterranean, in the lobby of the Alps, with one foot in Provence, in addition to the dominant aroma and light. It makes everything different here. Life, art, and even death, while in fact it is still fascinating man to be avoided inevitable! The sun that is the source of that light, though not the only one.
Because at night I had the impression that this huge sky stored inside an enormous amount of energy, which interferes with the fluid in the solar daily unrepeatable. Serenity that is playing with lavender and sunflower fields that overwhelms iris green landscape. While the walls of the medieval fortress honey color image lead to the border of naturalness. Nature is here, in the hills barely move away from the sea, while the all-seeing talents of French and European Impressionists did not gave this piece of world art immortality
