Born in Aix-en-Provence, France, the famous artist Paul Cezanne died at Paul Cezanne’s Studio at the age of 67. Cezanne pioneered the transition between 19th and 20th century art, leading Picasso and Matisse to call him “the father of us all.” This site is his former home, which still holds his personal effects.

  • To actually see the items used by Cezanne in his paintings was a real rush. The gardens behind the house were peaceful and quiet, a nice spot to sit and rest a bit. The atelier made me feel in touch w...  read more »

  • Gorulmesi gidildigi to somewhere you need to definitely in AIX. Cute and comfortable downtown yurunuyor. Workshop just preserved but noble atolyenin icini gezmektense cezanne's close to sit in the tree at the garden of the foliage much more impressive to listen to hisirtilarini. Of course, before cezanne who was what did you read, look at pictures of us uc bes. If you go to aa there's nothing here bassy, you say.

  • It's interesting to see the studio where Cézanne worked and the gardens around the house are beautiful. The admission fee is to access the single room upstairs where he worked, so it isn't the best value.
  • It's not cheap to visit (your paying to see one room! The studio) Be aware the house is up a steep hill away from the town centre and a pain to get to if your pushing a heavily laden pushchair. By the time we got there my wife and child were so tired they couldn't be bothered and just sat outside. I was impressed by the amazingly well preserved studio and you can even recognise some of the backgrounds and artefacts used in some of his still life works. The grounds are nothing but not very well maintained scrub and woodland. Nothing to see there. The staff are helpful. I didn't sign up to the tour. I tagged onto a French school tour. It's not a bad attraction. I should have booked a taxi.
  • The garden is rather large - only basic care being done. Very rustic looking. The studio looks as if Cezanne has just walked out. Nice to see the vases that were used in his paintings.
  • I am a PhD research scholar at IIT Roorkee, Uttarakhand, India. M research topic is on the legendary french artist Paul Cezanne. I want to visit the revered studio of the pioneer of the modern art. Visit the places he strengthened his eye to painting. i see the pics of his studio on-line.
  • If you like French Impressionist paintings then you need to stop here. If you do not speak French then be sure to sign up for the English tour. The tour leader is very animated and passionate about her art and explains things very well.
