Since Renoir and Signac first travelled to the south of France, it has been a source of inspiration for painters – a great open-air studio open to other Mediterranean countries. This exhibition chronologicals a presentation of the various movements that have marked the 20th century from 1880 to 1960, including impressionism, post-impressionism, fauvism, cubism, surrealism and abstraction. The two instalments of the exhibition, featuring around 200 pieces of artwork, was presented simultaneously in Marseille and Aix-en-Provence.
