Leave for Florence, with your painting Parfum de Toscane by artist Maryse Casol!
Painted by Maryse Casol in 2005, 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!
In the fall of 2006, Casol organized an exhibition in the lobby of the 1100 René-Lévesque Ouest Office Tower in Montreal, Canada owned by Oxford Properties. It was a grandiose show with the Casol paintings shinning in this modern building in front of a park, at the corner of René-Lévesque and Peel street, made of glass windows, with high ceilings of over 10 metres (32 ft).
Every day, professionals would discover the Maryse Casol paintings, such as the people of the BCF Law Firm, Altus real estate corporation, Transcontinental Media, Marketel advertising firm, and the Laurentian Bank. Casol organized a draw, and someone from BCF won the painting Parfum de Toscane worth $2,000 back then. It is also during this time that Mickaël Casol, and Noriko Emen fell in love.
2005 was a great year!

And everywhere cypress trees, fine herbs and geranium flowers... It was fresh, relaxing, the scent was perfect, truly la Dolce Vita!": Maryse Casol.
