Long Live Chagall

Imagine visiting this confiserie in Aix-en-Provence. That’s where artist Fay Sciarra traveled to this summer and got the inspiration for this reverse painting on glass. She acquired this cool vintage leaded glass window  from Russell Hutsko, one of the antiques dealers she represents at her Hopewell gallery, Umbrella.

She and her family have been doing house exchanges the past few years, and this past summer they exhcnged for a house in Provence.

La Cure de Gourmand, a sweet shop in Aix-en-Provence, is, she says, “a confection of a building” that appealed to Sciarra’s love of arabesque of line, warm colors and historic charm.  The landscape that appears in the second story windows is a view of her favorite Provencal village, St. Paul de Vence, where her hero, Marc Chagall, is buried.
