Art Museum Granet XXe – a must visit in Aix-en-Provence

granet xxe art museum aix en provence french travel blog

Art in a former church in Aix-en-Provence. More precisely, a modern art collection including some “300 paintings, drawings and sculptures by Impressionists and Post-Impressionists, Renoir, Monet, Van Gogh, Degas and Redon, and the major artists of the 20th century, including Bonnard, Rouault, Picasso, Braque, Dufy, Laurens, Léger, Klee, Bissière, de Staël and Dubuffet” Doesn’t this sound like the museum you need to visit? With a much more intimate feeling than the Musee Granet, and even Art Center hotel de Caumont, I didn’t feel like taking any pictures of the exhibited works. Personally I also highly appreciated the detailed descriptions, highlighting the close connection between Jean Planque and the worlds most famous painters, among them his personal friend Pablo Picasso.
The artwork that stood with me the most is Oriental Architecture from 1929 by Paul Klee. The similarities to Qatar’s Museum of Islamic Art is truly distinctive.

To discover more in-depth information on the exhibition, I’d recommend renting an audio guide for 3 Euro (available in the languages French, English, German, Italian, Spanish and Japanese) per adult.

If you plan on visiting both Musee Granet and Granet XXe in Aix, you should visit Musee Granet first for the duo-ticket (you only need to queue once for tickets to both museums). With Aix-en-Provence City Pass the entrance is free to both museums.
