Lonely Planet review

Cezanne’s final stop was the studio he had built on a piece of land he bought in 1901. Ironically the most visited but the least inspirational of all the Cézanne sights, the Atelier Paul Cézanne doesn’t hold any works by Cézanne but rather recreates his studio. Not all the tools and still-life models (recognise that green glass bottle?) strewn around the single room were his; many were added by the scholar who bought the studio after Cézanne’s death. The tall wooden frame in one corner is not an easel but rather a cherry-picking ladder Cézanne used to paint the studio walls grey. Take bus 1 from La Rotonde (av des Belges) to the Cézanne stop and walk five minutes downhill to the mustard house, or walk the 1.5km from town.
