The Painters' ground

Aix-en-Provence - Cultural place

The queen of his childhood landscapes, and the obsession of his life as an artist, the Sainte-Victoire mountain dominates the painter's work: 44 oil paintings and 43 water-colours of it are conserved in the world's great museums and in private collections.

The most famous pictures were painted from this marvellous vantage point on Chemin de la Marguerite on the Lauves hill.

The city of Aix-en-Provence has created the Painters' Ground here: facing the mountain, nine reproductions on lava stone of Cézanne's finest "Saint-Victoires" invite you to contemplation...
