This is a beautiful old convent which houses a collection of Picasso’s cubist period and several Cezanne paintings due to the generosity of the Pearlman foundation of New York. Because the New Yorker knew how important it would be for Aix to have these Cezanne...More

The collections seems mainly to be based on a major donation from the 19th century. In my eyes, there were no outstanding pieces or particular areas covered. Signs only in French. October 2017 brought a temporary exhibition of pieces by Cezanne. This is well worth...More

This is not the Louvre or Orsay but it's a good provincial art museum. The Granet XX in the old Chapelle des Penitents Blanc is quite special and worth seeking out.

There are few notable paintings I was glad to see but several items are out on loan and the collection is not very large. Interesting sculpture room though.

Interesting place since 2000 when a donator gave 71 paintings, but otherwise, quite limited. There are some pictures from Cezanne, of course, but in a limited way. Ad on leaflet made us thought it was much bigger. BUT, it is worth it for Granet himself...More

While the Granet has a very respectable collection, the exhibit that we nearly missed and which we were so pleased to have ventured to was in the museum Chapelle annex, a few blocks away. The converted chapel space is ideal for exhibitions and the one...More

There are two galleries. One has a collection of modern art, mainly Picasso, while the other specialised in statuary and more sonic paintings. Both are excellent, but I much preferred the Granet XXX. The building itself is accessible and beautiful, and there are some brilliant...More

This museum is well worth a visit, as it is approachable with a fine collection. The paintings span much of France's 19th and 20th century movements, and you will find exceptional Picassos. Eye-opening is the collection of works by Nicolas de Stael- especially his "Marine."...More
