Provenance
The private collection of a direct descendent of the artist

Haut-de-Cagnes is a medieval semi-pedestrian village located in the heart of the French Riviera, 20 km from Cannes and just 5 km from St-Paul-de-Vence. It was popular with artists in the early 20th Century, as it was far from the crowds of tourists, who were deterred by the steep climb to reach the ancient ramparts, winding alleys and shaded courtyards; it provided the ultimate Provençal charm. At the top of the village, there was the pension of Madame Lavelaine de Maubeuge, an old house transformed into a hotel restaurant and known as Cagnard. French artists such as Félix Vallotton (1865–1925) were regular guests and in 1928, Mrs. de Maubeuge commissioned the painter Emile Wéry (1868-1935) to paint the Guard Room. Paterson would have certainly enjoyed spending time here with like-minded artists and stunning landscapes. The Cagnard is a luxury boutique hotel today.
