This picture was shot from the so-called "Terrain des Peintres" (the painters' ground) on the outskirts of Aix-en-Province.
From this hill Paul Cézanne painted some of his famous views of the Mont Saint-Victoire. The house in the foreground is a more recent inclusion, I suppose.
Paul Cézanne (1839-1906) was a post-impressionist and a forerunner of the cubist movement, as such he played a crucial role in the development of (modern) art.
Cézanne is one of my all-time favourite artists, so the visit to this location was one of the highlights of our recent Easter trip down in France.

Une composition magnifique ! La maison blanche au toit de tuile au premier plan , entourée de buissons rouges , puis les forets et enfin la célèbre montagne . ET pour couronner le tout , un superbe ciel .
