Photographer's Note

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.
