Aix: Artwork from Picasso and André Villers at the Pavillon Vendome

Contributor blog post by Aixcentric:

There seems to have been a deluge of work by Picasso recently, in Marseille, in Aix, in Les Baux, in Cannes, but the small exhibition at Aix’s Pavillon Vendome, ‘Villers Picasso – Coup de Soleil’ really is worth investigating.

André Villers was just 22 and recovering from 6 years in a tuberculosis sanatorium when he met the world-famous 72-year-old artist.

…Continue reading here – 50 years may have separated the two men, but despite the age difference, Picasso became a mentor to André Villers. This show which runs until September 30th is an exciting exhibit of work that they two artists did together “à quatre mains” (with four hands) between 1954 and 1962.

Aixcentric was set up by Lynne Alderson three years ago as a channel to send out info on events taking place around Aix as well as news, relevant books, the latest films, new shops and of course where to eat locally. Why?

According, to Lynne:

"It came about out of frustration with the lack of communication in the town. Posters would suddenly go up about an event that week. No prewarning. I had difficulty too in finding information from many of the tourist offices. Things are slowly getting better and there is sometimes information in English. Hopefully by keeping an eagle eye on the local press and talking with contacts in town, I can publicize fun things that people would otherwise miss. It's a ragbag of info that I come across on my travels. I've published nearly 600 posts now and have lots of followers so hopefully, it is fulfilling its role of helping people, residents and visitors alike, get the most of their time in Aix."

For what is going on in Aix-en-Provence, Lynne has you covered at Aixcentric
