Former mansion that ordered by François Rolland de Réauville, is located in the Mazoran district, an upscale residential area in the center of Aix-en-Provence. After experiencing the turmoil of the family replacement, Culturespaces took over from Hôtel de Caumont and turned it into a site devoted to art exhibitions.
After extensive restoration, today Caumont Center d'Art is home for many great art shows and countless concerts, music shows and art lectures.
Sisley, the Impressionist. Special exhibition
From June 10th to October 15th, the Sisley exhibition is held here, with up to 60 exhibits on display here to public, including many artworks that have never been shown before.
