Cezanne's Studio in Aix en Provence

Not surprisingly, this was one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. The colors, the quality of light and the proportions of his large studio were pure perfection.

The narrow slit was installed to easily move large canvases into and out of the studio. It reminds me of the ventilation doors at the Carpenter Center at Harvard, by Le Corbusier. One wonders if Le Corbusier ever visited.

And look at the color of light through the leaves:


I would like to thank the distracted youth docents who were making out in the corner -- their negligence made these photos possible.

Truly inspiring. Cezanne is probably my favorite artist--if I was forced to choose just one.

Looking around for shots of Cezanne's studio to show student and found these great photos. Thanks! (For the photos and the big laugh I got at your comment about the docents.)

Thanks for commenting on Nick Haus! I look forward to seeing what you have to say. Unfortunately, I had to stop taking Anonymous comments -- too much spam, too much vituperative. Come out from behind the curtain, ye nasty Anonymous! Everyone else, please, I love to hear from you.
