This original postcard by Lotza is a depiction of the beach in the corsair city of Saint-Malo in Brittany, with its distinctive breakwaters that protect the beach from the ocean waves. Beyond its aesthetic appeal, this illustration is a reminder of the rich and fascinating history of Saint-Malo.
Founded in the 12th century, Saint-Malo was a prosperous city thanks to its port and thriving maritime trade. However, over the centuries, it became a notorious privateering town, with ships setting out to sea to attack enemy vessels and plunder their wealth.
During World War II, Saint-Malo suffered considerable damage during the fighting to liberate the city. However, the city was rebuilt in a style faithful to its original architecture, and has become a popular tourist destination thanks to its rich historical and cultural heritage.
Lotza‘s postcard perfectly captures the unique spirit of Saint-Malo, with its peaceful beach and towering breakwaters. This illustration is a unique work of art that will appeal to all lovers of history and coastal landscapes.
