Art History in Provence

October 13-23, 2019

Roman amphitheater in Arles, France

Trip Description:

If you’ve ever wanted to suffer from sensory overload from the great artists in Provence, here’s your chance! The artists include Cezanne, Van Gogh, Renoir, Chagall, Matisse, and Picasso. These artists all lived and worked in this lovely region of southern France; many of their homes, studios, and works are still available for us to visit so that we can better appreciate their works, lives, and legacies. Sevan Melikyan will lead us in the footsteps of these artists as he shows us and talks to us about the individual artists, their histories and how they connect to one another.


And we can’t forget the French food!
