About the Class

Cézanne felt a passionate, visceral bond to his native Provence, describing in a letter “the links that keep me attached to our native soil, so vibrant, so harsh and so reverberant with light.” Cézanne’s feelings for Provence manifested themselves above all in his landscape paintings. With its large collection of Cézanne landscapes, the Barnes is the ideal place to reflect upon Cézanne’s vision of Provence and how this vision was shaped by the changing culture, history, and arts of his native region. 

This course will take place primarily in the classrooms, with occasional visits to the galleries.
Capacity: 30 students
