A well-curated and enjoyable exhibition. Would have liked more information about Kokoshka. However our visit was thorough, enjoying all and afterwards we went to see where Cezanne worked in the local countryside.

One of the best Art Museums I've ever been to. I had the privilege to view the Pearlman Collection of Cezanne and other post impressionists~!

On until October 2014, a collection of fabulous expressionist art collected from the 1940's until his death. Well worth visiting.

The Pearlman Collection was a treat. its too bad that it cannot remain on permanent exhibit at the Granet Muesum. Art was first class and it took us 1.5 hrs to fully enjoy. The admission ticket provides access to both the Granet Musee and Granet XX the collection of Jean Plnque. Dont miss it, it is worth the walk.

Loved the current art exhibition - never seen so many Picassos together in one place, plus many other fine exhibits.

On the way to hear the Goldberg Variations (Bach) being played at La Roque D'Antheron International Piano Festival near Aix we decided to drop into Musee Granet and as luck would have it we were able to see a selection of the Pearlman Collection on loan from its permanent home in Princeton University Art Museum. There is not enough room... More

Aix has open a second location, in an old churn, to show a swiss collection of paintings. Not only the place itself is great, but the exhibition is of upmost interest! To insist on the quality of the presentation of the art pieces, with taste and logic; a great place to visit!

This museum presented visitors a range of painters from Picasso, Sisley, Cezanne, Renoire and a host of lesser known but still great works. The entrance for two museums was only 5 EURO.

Lovely building with sculpture, pictures of an excellent quality. Had some great examples by Ingres which blew my mind away. Easy to get around in an hour.
