Rosemary O'Neill locates the Ecole de Nice as a melange of modern masters like Picasso and Matisse, a postwar fascination with all things French, and Nouveaux Réalism.  Art and Visual Culture on the French Rivieria, 1956-1971 also explores how the Ecole de Nice's use of  appropriation,  ready-mades, and performance made it the School of Paris's postwar successor.
