A plethora of painters; Van Gogh and Cezanne to name but a few, made their way south to apply their talent at rendering the Luminosité of the region.  Marcel Pagnol and other writers described its effects on the character of the people hailing from Provence and film makers are always keen to show us its magnificence.  The course will look at paintings, photographs, films and books which best illustrate the importance of light in that glorious region of France
