Russian painter Alexandra Otieva exhibited her flower compositions on August 2 and 3, 2014 in the enchanting setting of La Rotonde Lenotre in Beaulieu sur Mer.
After exhibitions in France and around the world, Russian painter Alexandra Otieva staged some sixty paintings in the elegant setting of La Rotonde de Beaulieu to stir and surprise the visitor with works in pastels and floral colors, with summer and Mediterranean accents and flavors.
An exhibition on three themes
The works of Art were distributed into three sequence: flowers, playing with their velvet petals; still-life with decoratives accents and the strange attractiveness of nebulous landscapes, that slowly instill the visitors minds with a soul wandering in a world made of imaginary natures and evocations.
Art and luxury
The opening on the evening of August 2 was placed under the sign of art and luxury. Elegant windows exposed jewelry collections of the prestigious jeweler Fred in Cannes. A musical duo, consisting of a pianist and a violinist, charmed guests strolling among the works of the artist, a glass of Champagne from the famous house Collet in hand, while feasting on culinary delights, biscuits and sweets concocted by Lenotre chefs.
The evening took place inside the majestic dome of the rotunda and on the terrace overlooking the sea. The comfortably seated guests could friendiy discuss in the warm summer evening that dragged on in a pleasant atmosphere tinted with serenity and calm. Fireworks offered by the jeweler Fred closed up this evening of culture and elegance.
The artist Alexandra Otevia was wearing a dress composed of large flower on pink background, representing her favorite painting, a creation by designer Valeria Shipilova.
About Alexandra Otieva
The artist was born in Saratov in Russia. She has always been painting and practiced her artistry through her travels. Alongside her studies at the Saratov University of International Economics, she studied art with artists already known in Russia. During this period of growth and artistic synergy that has lasted more than 15 years, she has exhibited her watercolors in galleries in Russia and France.
Light, seasons, floral fireworks
Fell under the spell of the Great Blue, Alexandra Otieva settled on the French Riviera between sea and mountain in 2004 to devote herself entirely to her art. Her chosen field: floral compositions and light effects related to the change of seasons.
According to her, watercolor is a story of mixed feelings. As an ode to her Slavic origin, harmony, poetry and melancholy flow into her works. Beautiful frames, gilded with fine gold, enhance her paintings by giving them an attractive vision.
La Rotonde Lenotre, historical heritage
A true architectural masterpiece of the Belle Epoque, the Rotunda was once the dining room of former Hotel Bristol. Topped with a dome flooding it with light, this majestic circular building is now listed in the supplementary inventory of historic monuments. Pilasters, carved columns and benevolent angels make La Rotonde an elegant pavilion, typical of coastal climate stations from the early twentieth century.
Ideally located 8 km from Nice and 10 km from the center of Monaco, La Rotonde Lenotre occupies a privileged place in Beaulieu-sur-Mer where the sea meets the mountains in a tropical paradise. Overlooking the marina, the Salons de la Rotonde Lenotre offer stunning views of the sea and its shores lined with palm trees.
