|I bought this oil painting (35"
x 27") through an ebay auction. Artist is
"Salter". Thought to have been painted
around about 1910. The Chapel contains beautiful
warm-toned frescos, dated around 1530 and
discovered quite by chance under the plasterwork.
This ediface was clasified as a historic monument
in 1936. The merciful virgin represents the
central theme of these images which were intended
to educated the peasants and town inhabitants, as
well as develop their devoutness.
also offers a magnificent view of the massif du
Mercantour and the Mediterranean. Rue Hippolyte
Guis to to the right of the chapel. See also Cagnes 5 -
Pierre-Auguste Renoir. A Church at Cagnes. 1905.
