Aix, Paul Cézanne’s home town

Email This Page

He is unquestionably the most famous personality. After a period of Romanticism, he discovered Impressionism and then invented ” a new art “, of which he called himself “the “primitive”. His quest for expression is revealed through his series of works: portraits, still life, landscapes, and bathers. Painted in oil or watercolour, they all reveal the work of an obstinate craftsman. He may have left the town of Aix- en-Provence, but he came back stronger.

3 important sites in the life of the painter

  • Cézanne’s workshop - visit: 30 min. Closed every Sunday of January, February and December and January 1st and 2nd, May 1st and December 25
