The Old Vines Near Menerbes

From his house in Ménerbes, the British painter Philip Hughes infuses his canvases with the searing light of the Luberon, illuminating the contrasts of the rich verdant valley nestled among impassioned rugged mountains. His landscapes are inspired by the soothing colors of the Vaucluse as well as those of Wilshire and Orkney in Britain.
