Art Trails of the Riviera
Join Kate Comer in this special Globe Trekker episode as she searches out the sites, playgrounds and homes of some the greatest artists of the modern era.
Iconic artists of the early and mid 20th century made the south of France their home. Paul Cezanne, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Pablo Picasso, Paul Signac, Pierre Bonnard, Fernand Leger, Marc Chagall, Henri Matisse and even the avant-garde poet, Jean Cocteau all gravitated here attracted by its scenic landscapes and attractive light. We travel from Arles by the Rhne, to the birthplace of modern art in Aix-en-Provence, to the cities of Antibes, Nice and Cagnes-sur-Mer, and along the sublime Riviera coastline to Menton by the Border with Italy.
Along the way:
Explore Arles and its many sites made famous by Van Gogh, still there today
Visit the Vence chapel transformed by the wondrous stained glass of Henri Matisse
Visit Renoir's home and the museums of Leger and Coctueau
Tour the vaults of Vallauris chapel and its walls and ceiling painted by Pablo Picasso
