Monday Mural - The Music Room

Photos taken in September 2017 when we visited my daughter's French in-laws in Marseille.

The trompe-l'œil was painted by local artist Richard Campana in a building in  Boulevard Longchamp, just across the road from the Palais Longchamp, a monument which houses the Museum of Natural History and the Museum of Fine Arts, as well as a beautiful garden and fountains.

If you like murals or have a mural you'd like to post, this meme is for you;
just follow the Linky steps below.   Be sure to link back to this blog and visit your fellow posters.  Looking forward to your mural finds this week.  
Thanks, Sami.

  2. The drawing is a real work of art. And I also like the illusion that it comes off slightly from the surface of the wall, with the shadow projected on it. A very nice find!

  18. I think that the French perfected the whole genre of urban murals before anyone even thought of it. And I remember seeing trompe-l'oeil painted on the doors of cupboards by impecunious impressionists who imagined the food inside.
