Carrieres de Lumieres and Musee Yves Brayer paintings in Les Baux de Provence, Musee Simon Segal Contemporary Art in Aups, Atelier Cezanne and Fondation Vasarely in Aix-en-Provence, Fondation Van Gogh in Arles, Musee Nationale de Fernand Leger near Biot and this is not nearly the whole list of museums and galleries in Provence.
