Art in St-Paul-de-Vence

St-Paul-de-Vence is an artists’ town.

It is here one can find, Auberge Colombe d’Or, one of the most famous restaurants in the south of France. The original owner, Paul Roux, was a passionate art lover. When he opened the restaurant in 1920, lots of poor and unknown artists like Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Paul Cézanne, Joan Miró, Marc Chagall, Henri Matisse, Colette and Jacques Prévert came here to eat, drink and have a nice time with each other. Everybody felt attracted to the place, but they could not always pay the bill. Instead they left a drawing or a painting. Or Paul Roux exchanged food and lodgings for a drawing or a painting. He often bought works of the artists. Everything he bought got in exchange or received as presents hang in the restaurant. It is one of the finest private collections from the 20th century. Auberge Colombe d’Or is an outstanding and highly exclusive eating place.
