TOURISM IN ROUSSILLON
« Le pays de Banyuls est composé de vallons modérés, au-dessus des torrents et des vignes. Parfois le cirque des collines où paraissent des groupes d’oliviers presque bleus donne l’impression sensuelle d’un tapis de laine.
…une grappe de noir grenache sur le sol, un galet de schiste, une figue de Barbarie, la surface polie de la mer, tout cela se transpose dans la sculpture de Maillol… »
Joseph Sebastian Pons
Excerpt from: the sculptor of BANYULS, the Moray and Henri frère, 1983
