The Granet museum now holds some fifteen Cézanne works, paintings, watercolors, drawings and engravings. This collection was created thanks to the Meyer donation, the deposit of the Jean and Suzanne Planque Foundation, generous donations from individuals and various purchases, including that of the Portrait of Zola acquired in 2011.
Including Tal Coat exhibition : november 18th until March 11th, 2018 : For several years the Meyer Donation has made Tal Coat's work very present at the Granet Museum. It was indeed in Aix-en-Provence that the artist settled for fifteen years (from 1941 to 1956), at Château-Noir, an emblematic Cézanne site.
This entrance is also available the same day to the annex Site Granet XXe Collection Jean Planque, located Place Jean Boyer (on the top of Marechal Joffre street).
Nearly 600 paintings, sculptures and archaeological pieces are on display: paintings from the 17th century French school, a room devoted to Paul Cézanne with 9 oil paintings, the Cézanne to Giacometti Collection (works by Giacometti, Picasso, Léger, Klee, de Staël, Tal Coat, Velde...) as well as collections from the European schools (Flemish, Italian, Dutch) with ubens, Rembrandt... a sculpture gallery, and an Entremont room (Celto-Ligurian sculptures from the Entremont archaeological site)...
The Granet Museum's modern art collection was significantly enlarged in 2010 with the 15-year loan, by the Jean and Suzanne Planque Foundation, of the collection of Swiss painter and collector Jean Planque, who died in 1998.
The collection comprises some 300 paintings, drawings and sculptures from the impressionists and post-impressionists Renoir, Monet, Van Gogh, Degas and Redon to the leading artists of the 20th century such as Bonnard, Rouault, Picasso, Braque, Dufy, Laurens, Léger, Klee, Bissière, de Staël and Dubuffet.
