Arles, France: The Pleasures and Palate of Provence: An Artist’s Journey

Art Immersions

No Funding
New York, United States


Spend two magical weeks in Provence, in the charming city of Arles. All are welcome. This quaint town in Provence has become a home for forward thinking innovations in the arts. During the summer, art world luminaries flock to the event of the year - an international photography festival. The eclectic cultural art hub that has sprung up in the last three decades consists of traditionally French architecture intermingled with nouveau modern; as well as world-class art galleries, boutique museums, avant-garde performance art, and quintessentially French café life. This is where Van Gogh, who sought respite here, was the most prolific. He not only completed 300 plus works in little over a year, but many of these works are his most famous.
