• Marabini says the next step is to introduce an artist in residence programme at her hotel. “We are not looking for art with negative themes or bloodshed. If they have a good idea, we will offer hospitality for one to three weeks. It is important for the artists to visit the museums here. Cote d’Azur is significant because of its history with artists (painters, writers, and filmmakers such as Cezanne, Chagall, Picasso, Renoir, Cocteau, Modigliani, Matisse and Liègeard spent part of their lives in the South of France). And this hotel has been around since 1865. I am hoping that Indian artists will find their way here.”
