Overlooked by the Etna – the highest volcano in Europe – Sicily, the largest island of the Mediterranean, has always aroused interest and desire because of its strategic position and because of the wealth of its land. Over the centuries, Sicily has come under various rulers and has had a fertile history: Carthaginian, Greek, Roman, Norman, Byzantine and now Italian. It is a model of architectural diversity and cosmopolitanism, with Roman villas, baroque palaces, medieval castles and Islamic vestiges. Through Sicilian architecture as well as scenes from daily life, this book proudly unveils the many facets of Sicily. Fabrice Moireau spent weeks striding along the landscapes of Sicily with his palette and his brushes to depict this land of mountains and lava, of sand and grapevine.
Fabrice Moireau was born in 1962 in Blois, France. He is a graduate of the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Appliqués et des Métiers d’Art in Paris. A great lover of architecture and Roman history, he strives in his watercolours, to convey the subtle play of light and the atmosphere of a city or landscape. He has illustrated many publications in the Sketchbook series including Paris Sketchbook, Rooftops of Paris, Loire Valley Sketchbook, Provence Sketchbook, Venice Sketchbook and New York Sketchbook, also published by Editions Didier Millet.
