Cezanne's View

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Kevin Kelly

Overlooking Mont Sainte-Victoire just outside of Aix in Provence, is the same unspoiled view French artist, Paul Cezanne painted and sketched dozens of times in his life. Framed by the grey green of olive trees and Italian cyprus, visitors can still find inspiration and pause at the beauty of what Cezanne found over a century earlier.

Location: Near Aix-en-Provence, France.
