Bienvenue #65533; la maison: The textures and tones of dreamy Provence Nestled in the south of France, bordering the Mediterranean sea, is a magical region of the world renowned for its lavender fields, fine cuisine, golden sun, and dreamy landscapes. This land, known as Provence, has inspired such writers and artists as Alphonse Daudet, Fr#65533;d#65533;ric Mistral, and Vincent Van Gogh. Paul Cezanne loved the region's Mount Sainte Victoire so much that he immortalized it in his famous paintings; his Provence studio, which still looks the same as it did over one hundred years ago, is featured herein, as is the house where Mistral, 1904 Nobel prize-winner, lived and wrote. Also included are photographs of the famous Hotel Nord-Pinus in Arles where Jean Cocteau sojourned and Picasso stayed when he came to see the bullfights. Bringing together the region's most remarkable interiors, classical and contemporary, this book paints a gorgeous picture of Proven#65533;al living. Text in English, French, and German
