Part of my artists tour of Europe (Escher, Giger, Varsarely, Gaudi). The building itself is a great way to display the opulence of one of the masters of op art. A great selection of Varsarely's work both architecturaly and visually. If you are aware of...More

We loved this gallery – so different to the usual run of museums and galleries through southern France. Vasarely’s huge optical illusion art pieces are fascinating and you can certainly spend quite a while there, viewing them from every angle - though you can also...More

This was a short, easy, bus ride outside of Aix en Provence (the #2 bus left from outside the Tourism office and costs 1 EUR each way) and worth a quick visit. The artwork on display is pretty incredible. HUGE murals and abstract art hung...More
