Opening of our exhibition Bernard Buffet and Saint-Tropez.
Since the early 20th century, many artists have frequented the area, including Paul Signac, Henri Matisse and Pierre Bonnard. For Bernard Buffet, Saint-Tropez became more than just a source of inspiration: in 1958, he met Annabel Schwob, the woman he would marry the same year.Annabel Schwob.
Twenty years later, the book Saint-Tropez, illustrated with 23 original color lithographs, with a text by Annabel calligraphed by Bernard Buffet, was published. The exhibition features several preparatory gouaches for the lithographs, created especially for the book.
