The old stock of the landscape painter Marius BREUIL (1850-1932) was discovered in 1999. A prolific correspondence was also found. It tells us a lot about the life of this artist. He was a major witness of his time and the friend of all bright artists, writers, actors, patrons of the art and other creators living at this time in the south of France area called “la Provence”, especially in the town called Avignon.

His work remained for a large part unknown during at least one hundred years. His style was a wonderful union of rigor and severity and of an extraordinary sense of the light that was rarely reached.

This discovery is an incredible treasure, a part of the great painting art in Provence in the 20th century and of "Avignon's school".
