The Promenade des Anglais:

artists in Nice

In the early 18th century, Nice was just a small town relying on fishing, fruit-growing and flowers for its income until it was ‘discovered’ by English travellers on the Grand Tour. It was an English clergyman who, in 1820, provided the funds for the construction of a Promenade. Such development encouraged the fashionable people of the time, including Queen Victoria. By the 20th century the brilliant light and climate attracted many artists to live there and by considering the works of Matisse, Dufy and others, this lecture looks at the ways in which Nice influenced their work.
