A New Book, Art in the South of France: The Inside Story

Contributor blog post by Aixcentric:

My new book “Art in the South of France: The Inside Story” is being launched this week.

It is a journey across from ancient sun-drenched Arles through Saint-Tropez and Saint Paul-de-Vence to the Italianate beauty of Menton, following the artists who flocked south to the area where their creativity flourished under the sun.

Van Gogh worked in Arles and Saint-Rémy, Signac painted in Saint-Tropez, while Renoir and Matisse settled in Nice.

There are stories about artists who were born in the region, those who were attracted by the natural beauty and contemporary artists too. Lynne highlights many of the museums in Provence as she follows the artistic paths in Provence.

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."
