Musings on life in Lodeve, Languedoc

A visit to Aix-en-Provence

Aix fountainIt’s possible to go round Aix en Provence and be unaware that Cezanne was born and lived here, but once you notice the little brass studs in the streets showing you where he and his family lived and visited, you find traces everywhere (the booklet explains it all).

Cézanne I wandered round the town, went to Cézanne’s studio and the Thursday morning market, and took a bus out to Puylourdier at the foot of the Montagne Sainte Victoire.

And of course I went to the Cézanne Picasso exhibition which was in its last week. Fortunately I got there early; this is what the queue looked like in the afternoon. (More photos on
