Beautiful painted interiors in The South of France for Art Lovers
1) Chapelle Folon
The Belgian artist Jean-Michel Folon created eight paintings, a monumental mosaic, four stained-glass windows and two sculptures for the Chapelle des Pénitents Blancs in Saint-Paul-de-Vence. He completed the designs shortly before his death in October 2005, after which they were carefully executed by craftsmen. The Chapelle Folon, which opened in 2008, is a Gesamtkunstwerk that showcases what a versatile artist Folon was. Here you step into his poetic, colourful and light-filled world. Folon’s work is a tribute to mankind and to humanity. In all these works, he emphasises giving and sharing, and the importance of dreams and poetry.
