Disney’s newest resort and vacation club, the Riviera Resort will not only whisk guests away to the Riviera, but it will take them on an artistic journey through Disney.
The resort will feature a one-of-a-kind art collection, comprised of more than 40 original pieces that celebrate a blend of Disney characters and icons, as well as European storytelling and the fine art stylings of master artists who drew inspiration form the Riviera.
Here are a few of the signature pieces created exclusively for the resort:
Still Life with Teapot
During the 20th century artists around the Riviera began exploring ways to make still life objects come to life on a flat canvas. They would first break the objects into individual shapes and forms, then accentuate each object with strong outlines.
You can find this technique in the “Beauty and the Beast” painting where Cogsworth, Lumiere, Chip and Mrs. Potts are broken apart and then put back together again.
Girl with Lanterns
Gorgeous hues of purple, orange and yellow bring to life Rapunzel and Pascal from Tangled as they watch the glowing lanterns light up the sky. The work creates a beautiful pattern of shape and color.
The Seaside Nap
Taking guests back to Disney’s cartoon origins, The Seaside Nap is styled to reflect the vintage characteristics of early black and white cartoon art.
Disney’s Riviera Resort is currently under construction and projected to open Dec. 16, 2019.
