Cézanne and Kandinsky at the Atelier des Lumières

The Atelier des Lumières is first of all 140 laser video projectors immersing the spectator in different universes in the course of the exhibitions which follow one another but do not resemble each other. The play of images on the walls and the floor is accompanied by an incredible soundtrack from Chopin to David Bowie. There is something for everyone.


To begin with, you will find the province of Cézanne and the impressionist influences intrinsic to his work. This exhibition particularly highlights the painter's colorful still lifes.

The second part of this exhibition focuses on Cézanne's self-portraits. His first self-portrait dates from 1862 when he was 23 years old. This part of the exhibition is darker than the previous one. 

The Cézanne exhibition continues in the heart of Provence. Be immersed in a play of green and blue between the sky, the pines and the Mont Sainte-Victoire. It is a trip to Provence without leaving Paris that is guaranteed.


The second exhibition is about the Russian abstract painter Kandinsky. It begins with the beginnings of the artist and his figurative style although already very colorful. We recognize all of his subjects and his inspiration from Russian folklore and especially Moscow.

Then we are plunged into the abstract art, the forms, the movement and the color representing the artist. This part makes a clear break with the figurative beginnings previously mentioned.
