Cezanne’s studio in Aix-en-Provence, France
Cezanne, like many artists, built a “window wall” on the north side of his studio to take advantage of the diffused north light. The studio walls, which originally were white but interfered with the light, Cezanne painted the perfect shade of grey. He also had wooden floors he left unpolished so they wouldn’t reflect the sunlight.
“The studio is on the first floor. Living accommodation had been created on the ground floor, but Cézanne ended up using this mainly to store his canvasses - up to 2,000 of them - and continued to reside in an apartment in the city, at 23 rue Boulegon.”
