Cézanne for Families


A fantastic new exhibition will be opening at the Vallée de la Jeunesse in Lausanne on the 11th of February 2014“Ô Cézanne”, a fascinating insight into the work of the much-loved post impressionist French painter, perfect for children aged 5 to 11.

Who doesn’t love Paul Cézanne’s intense colours and idyllic landscapes? He’s certainly one of the iconic 19th century painters your little ones can easily relate to, and this great exhibition has been devised with a very young audience in mind.

From the 11th of February to the 29th of June 2014 you & your budding little artists will be able to discover Cézanne’s world in a fun & interactive way, walking amongst his easels & the apples that feature so prominently in his still lives.
