The Great Studio in the South

All across Provence throughout 2013, various art exhibitions are touching on the theme of how artists were dazzled and inspired by their visit to the South, But Le Grand Atelier du Midi is the one you mustn't miss. Its title comes from a quote by Vincent van Gogh, who dreamed of a community of artists working together in harmony in the light and colour of the South when he briefly shared a house in Arles with Paul Gauguin (it all ended badly for him, of course).

Nearly 200 works by major artists including Renoir, van Gogh, Gauguin, Bonnard, Cézanne, Dufy, Matisse, Picasso, Dali and many more will be on display in a two-part show held in Marseille and Aix en Provence.
