A village marked by art for more than 100 years
Marie Raymond, a painter known internationally, was born on 4 May 1908 in La Colle-sur-Loup. She lies in the village cemetery alongside her son. She was the mother of the famous Yves Klein, who gave his name to a street and a school in the village. Art has therefore been part of La Colle’s DNA from the beginning of the 20th century. Besides the collection of works you can find in public spaces, we invite you to visit two unusual venues in which you will meet passionate contemporary artists.
