Life, nature and health has always been a passion for Maryse Casol. In Quebec, there is a short moment in time, usually from October 1st to October 15, when the temperature rises back up, the sun shines, and all the trees turn from green, to red, yellow and orange, truly amazing and beautiful. People are happy, and there is a sense of excitement in the air! People want to celebrate, and discover the nature. Voyagers from around the world come during that time, just to witness, l'Été Indien!
Painted by Maryse Casol in 2003, using Sennelier oil made in Paris, France at 3 Quai Voltaire facing the Louvre (painting of choice by the greatest artists since 1887, such as Degas, Cézanne and Picasso) , on a custom cotton canvas, mounted on a frame in linden wood made by Bambino Gianfrancesco, owner of Les Cadres et Moulures Majestic, one of the best Italian artisans in the world.
Graduate from the Istituto Tecnico Settore Tecnologico school in Campobasso, Mr. Bambino was also a Track and Field Champion in Europe in the 1960s before coming to Canada!
On November 10, 2018, Maryse Casol wore the Été Indien silk scarf at the Opéra de Montreal, for the première of Das Rheingold.
In November 2013, the Google office in Paris contacted Maryse Casol to invite her to be part of their new Google Open Gallery, an online destination, where art fans can discover and see the works by famous artists with a new powerful zoom technology. A month later, the Été Indien painting by Maryse Casol was featured at the Google Open Gallery, now known as the Google Arts and Culture Institute.
On May 22, 2009, the Casol silk scarf Été Indien is part of the launch party at the famous Time Supper Club in Montreal, Canada, with a photoshoot and film making of the campaign Je Suis Une Fauve, a fashion show of the Carré Casol, a Samba dance extravaganza, and party with house music and R&B, vodka and chocolate cake!
In February 2008, Été Indien is printed, part of the Casol square silk scarf collection made in Lyon, France by Bianchini-Férier, also known as Brochier Soieries, the silk leading firm around the world since 1890. Bianchini were the first ones to work with famous artists such as Dufy, Picasso and Klimt on silk scarf collections. Soon after the launch, the Carré Casol was offered for sale for you at the new boutique on marysecasol.com, and exhibited at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts boutique in August, 2008. Thank you to your support, le Carré Casol has been bought worldwide, from Los Angeles to Tokyo!
To promote the scarves, Mickael Casol, and his soon to be wife Noriko Emen, then traveled to New York City in March to have interviews with the media, and to the different art events of the moment (The Armory Show, Christies, Sothebys, Phillips), but also to Paris and Monaco to meet with buyers, and to the UAE for meetings in Abu Dhabi, and to host a conference at the Esmod French Fashion University in Dubai.
In December 2004, Maryse Casol teamed up with her son Mickaël Casol, to organize a solo show in Côte des Neiges at a Sidev Building near HEC Montreal. The exhibition was a success, with all the community being present, including friends and family, but also top business executives, lawyers, doctors, athletes, professors and the National TV. Your Été Indien painting was part of the show!
2003 was an amazing year! Maryse Casol completed her studies in arts in December at l'Académie des Arts et Beaux-Arts de Varennes, published her first book for $12,000 with texts written by Sam Aberg for les Éditions Renaissance, had built a collection of over 15 paintings, and showed some of them at 3 exhibitions at the Novotel Hotel, Marriott Chateau Champlain Hotel and the Mount Stephen Club in Canada. It is also the year that her son, Mickaël Casol, started the HEC Montreal business school in September.
