Life, nature and health has always been a passion for Maryse Casol.
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!
After the Maryse Casol art exhibition in Côte des Neiges in the fall of 2004, her son and art dealer Mickaël Casol wanted to grow the reach of the paintings even further in Montreal. Therefore, using his new marketing techniques from HEC Montreal, he also took the advice from his friend Victor Gandasegui, who worked at Postes Canada at the time, and they sent a 5,000 postcards campaign to every home in the Town of Mont-Royal, offering to give the painting Bourgeonnement, as a draw, for those who would sign up to the new Casol email newsletter. Mrs. Lisette Amore won this contest, and won her painting Bourgeonnement by Maryse Casol!
In the fall of 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 Bourgeonnement 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.

Maryse Casol liberates you in a constant Joie de Vivre, with vibrant colours, exotic landscapes, blazing still lives and neo-abstract paintings, inspired from the generous sun of the South of France, numerous journeys around the world, and the different cultures of it's people.

Born in Libourne, France in 1957, of Italian father and French mother, Maryse Casol always wanted to discover the world, which she did and came back with treasures, art that will be given from our children, to their children, in a tradition that was embraced many centuries ago.
