PresentationThe Gallery Imbert, in the center of old Aix en Provence, is now 11 years old and our place on the provençal art scene is gaining importance and recognition. We enjoy giving you the choice of the best artists in Provence and look forward to your visit to our gallery. Our location in the heart of Aix en Provence near the Cathedral is central enough to make your visit to this lovely french southern town a pleasant experience. You can take in a concert at the Cathedral, an opera or a concert in the summer during the festival, and why not just have a coffee or a glass of wine in one of the bistros in our “quartier”.
This region has a long painterly tradition and can boast of a lengthy list of famous artists. Much of the modern movement in painting, in fact, has its roots in an alchemy of ideas of painters both from this region and elsewhere in the world. Landscape painting and techniques emerged from painters in Provence and has been the highlight of modernist painting movement. The attraction of this region has created a lovely blend of ideas, concepts and visions. A provençal school, if we can call it that is more an exchange of artists, a sort of freindship that is forged, a mutual understanding of what this region best offers, ’la dolce vita’!
What seems to have become a melting pot of color and character, one could say that our artists choose us and not the contrary. The selection of artists in our gallery has been defined by a certain criteria which mainly amounts to a sharing of a vision. Our artists are professional and paint with a passion and have been painting and exhibiting for many years. The Gallery Imbert, however, is more than aware of budding talent and we have a new section in our gallery that presents new, young artists.
