Catalogue Note

The present work depicts Notre Dame de Vie, a 17th Century monastery near the village of Mougins in the south of France.  It was a 1934 vacation in this area that prompted Villon to seriously consider landscape as a subject matter, and the artist would execute several paintings and drawings of this location in addition to a series of prints.
