Cezanne’s Atelier

Here are a few highlights of the studio Cezanne had built atop a hill in Aix-en-Provence.  I walked up that hill in the heat.  The garden outside the studio vibrated with a chorus of cicadas:

Cezanne’s studio is upstairs in a room that is like a 50 m cube, with the main feature, the windows.

The objects he liked to paint were parked on tables and shelves and the gray wash paint made everything else fall back.

The simple elegance of his tools and space:

There was a video about his painting running in the shed outside and that was about it.  A bottle of water and sitting a few minutes before I hiked back into Aix Centre.
