"An Art Lover's Guide to the French Riviera is a comprehensive, informal and thoroughly engaging handbook to one of the jewels in France's artistic crown. Recommendations abound in Patrick J. Murphy's concise book as the reader accompanies him through galleries and museums, churches, city streets and hill top villages, to witness the artistic treasures the French Riviera has to offer.
This guide sagely informs its readers on where best to visit. No artistic stone is left unturned as Murphy's exploration ranges from the colour and flair of the Chagall Museum to the architectural gem that is the Museum of Asian Arts and the ancient, art-filled churches in between.
An Art Lover's Guide to the French Riviera contains treasures enough to delight all, from the enthusiastic novice to the discerning connoisseur. Reader's will relish, as the author has clearly done, the opportunity to visit, and revisit, the towns and villages of the French Riviera's wonderful art trail. " -- Inner sleeve
