Climate in Provence lends a luminosity to the area’s geography, monuments and culture. Summer and winter bathe the country in sun with little rain until spring and autumn.
Some areas boast 300 sunny days of the year. The mistral, the infamous north-south wind of Provence, blows strong for days on end in winter and spring and is reputed
to have driven men mad, but in it’s wake leaves skies so clear and the light so brilliant as to seem unnatural. Van Gogh, Gauguin, Signac, Renoir, Vuillard, Caillebotte, Matisse,
Chagall, and Picasso all did much of their best work here.

Ochre-colored soil, vineyards, silvery-green olive orchards, fields of lavender, towering white limestone calanques on the sea and the turquoise of the Mediterranean set Provence
apart from other parts of France. One experiences a sense of well-being and an urge to see it all.
Gallery Hours:  Monday - Thursday 10 AM - 8 PM;  Friday and Saturday 10 AM to 5 PM.
