In the South of France

The white limestone face of Montagne Sainte-Victoire forms a bold backdrop for Aix-en-Provence, often shortened to Aix. The mountain was both Cézanne’s fascination and his muse, the subject of numerous works by this Post-Impressionist painter. Viewing the area through his perspective is just one of the many ways to enjoy Aix.
