Canada, country of freedom, nature, fresh air and magnificent landscapes. Values that meet the desires of Maryse Casol, are here reflected in this painting.
Painted by Maryse Casol in 2004, 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 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 Contemplation painting by Maryse Casol was featured at the Google Open Gallery, now known as the Google Arts and Culture Institute.
Contemplation was given in June 2005 to the Dr. Pietro Di Battista, a respected periodontist surgeon in Montreal, a friend, and martial arts partner of Mickaël Casol.
2004 was a great year! Maryse Casol, after completing her studies in arts in 2003 at l'Académie des Arts et Beaux-Arts de Varennes, publishing her first book for $12,000, building a collection of over 30 paintings, and showing some of them at 3 exhibitions at the Novotel Hotel, Marriott Chateau Champlain Hotel and the Mount Stephen Club, teamed up with her son Mickaël Casol, 1st year student at HEC Montreal, to organize a solo show near the University. The exhibition was a success, with all the community being present at the event, including friends and family, but also top business executives, lawyers, doctors, athletes, professors and the National TV. Why was 2004 great to you?!
