Museum in Baux de Provence
Opened in 1991, the Yves Brayer Museum displays a hundred or so canvas paintings, watercolours and drawings representative of the artist's work.
The Porcelet family holds an important position in Provence, with origins dating back to the XIIth century.
Massive restoration work carried out from 1991 to 1997, restoring one of the most beautiful Baux de Provence buildings to its original late XVIth century splendour
The original façade, irregularly made of million windows, matches up ideally with the "Lantern of the Dead" of the nearby Saint Vincent Church.
In the vaulted ground floor room, interesting XVIIth century frescos represent the Four Cardinal Virtues and the Four Seasons
After 3 years of embellishment work, with the help of the Conseil Régional, the Conseil Général and the Fondations Crédit Agricole Alpes Provence and Crédit Agricole Pays de France, this year, an exciting revisitation of the permanent collections will continue. Each room now hosts a piece by a young contemporary artist : Emma Bougaeff (France), Mark Beard (USA), Gabriela Irigoyen (Brésil), Françoise Plée (France), Yoshiko Yoshida (Japon).
