Details of next year’s big summer exhibition at Aix’s Musée Granet have been announced.

‘Cézanne et la Modernité’ will bring 50 works from the Pearlman Collection to town 11th July – 5th October.  These pictures will include watercolours by Cézanne as well as impressionist and post-impressionist paintings from the collection.
