Fabrice Moireau and Lucien d’Azay
Florence − capital of Tuscany, birthplace of the Renaissance and a UNESCO Word Heritage Site − is shown in this book through the depictions of its architectural wealth, iconic monuments and its less well-known areas. From churches to museums, gardens to palaces, and small squares to twisting narrow streets, Fabrice Moireau has created a vivid portrait of the city where the Medicis, Leonardo da Vinci and Dante Alighieri once lived. The artist’s palette reveals the grandeur of the history of Florence, as well as its charms and atmosphere.
Fabrice Moireau was born in 1962 in Blois, France. He is a graduate of the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Appliqués et des Métiers d’Art in Paris. A great lover of architecture and Roman history, he strives in his watercolours to convey the subtle play of light and the atmosphere of a building or landscape. He has illustrated many books in Editions Didier Millet’s sketchbook series, including Paris Sketchbook, Rooftops of Paris, Loire Valley Sketchbook, Provence Sketchbook and New York Sketchbook.
