July 14 Night in the Port of Saint-Tropez

While creating this work, the artist fell into the memories of the wonderful time spent on the French Cote d'Azur. The night of July 14 was special for him – that was the time of impetuous fun, inspiring ease and heady freedom. It was on this day in 1880 when the national holiday - the Bastille Day - was announced. The historical event that became the ground of the initiation of the holiday took place during the Great French Revolution: in 1789, the rebelled Parisians stormed the Bastille fortress-prison, a symbol of the royal despotism, and released seven prisoners. This event is considered the beginning of the Great French Revolution, as well as the symbol of the overthrow of absolutism. Although the Bastille Day is considered the national holiday in France, it is celebrated not only in this country, but throughout the world. The young artist was not an exception; he felt his involvement with the French people and their history, walking through the landmark of Saint-Tropez - the Old Port - and drawing sketches.
