Cezanne's studio, also known as Atelier des Lauves is a veritable place of memory, marked by Cezanne's imprint. It allows to discover the familiar objects of the painter and his artistic preferences.
On 1st September 1902, Cezanne gradually settled into his large country studio. He worked there every day during the last four years of his life. All of Cézanne's admirers are well aware that this is where you can feel the painter's presence most strongly.

It is here, on the Lauves hill, among the objects he treasured, the models of his last still lifes, his furniture and his work tools, that you will feel the painter's presence most intensely.

From 1902 until his death in 1906, Cezanne worked every morning in this studio of light and silence, the birthplace of dozens of paintings that are now owned by the world's great museums, including the last series of Large Bathers.

The studio has a shop selling books and souvenirs, regularly hosts temporary exhibitions and holds cultural and gastronomic events in season.
