Original painting - Les Toiles du Soleil 2


Original painting by Michelle Harvey


Inspired by vintage striped canvas deckchairs in France. Memory and nostalgia are explored through the iconic design of Les Toiles du Soleil (cloth of the sun).  These sunny striped canvases have been produced in the south of France for 150 years. Espadrilles and camp stools, tents and totes all in colourful stripes epitomise the summer holidays of my childhood.
