Lifting the soul

Lifting the soul

Château Saint-Martin & Spa has always been a place to pursue beauty. This summer we bring you works of art to lift your soul: sculptures by the great Valencian, Manolo Valdés, standing in relief to the rolling Vence hillside. 

Until October 17, 2021

The Valencian, Manolo Valdés

4 monumental sculptures

Born in Valencia, Spain, in 1942, Manolo Valdés is one of the few artists who have mastered multiple mediums including drawing, painting, sculpture and print making. In each form he is considered highly original, technically sound and constantly provocative.

Works by Valdés are included in museum collections around the world, from the Metropolitan, New York to the Pompidou Centre.

We exhibit four of his sculptures to stunning effect against our Riviera scenery.

Two works have his signature reference to historic masterpieces. The bronze Reina Mariana, is inspired by Velazquez’s greatest painting of the Spanish court, the 1656 Las Meninas, Dama a Caballo shows a distinguished woman on horseback, reminiscent of his portrait of Isabel de Borbón. By our pool is Mariposas, his delicate bronze dancing butterflies in shimmering blue.
