Fort St. Andre, Avignon


The ancient Fort St. Andre in Villeneuve-les-Avignon provided the focal point for many of Mela Muter's landscapes during her time in Avignon. The present work is heavily influenced by Cezanne in it's palette and composition and again by Paul Signac in the restrained watercolour technique, characterised by short strokes, outlines and small blocks of brilliant colour interspersed with areas of blank paper. A similar view was painted by Corot in 1836.
