Four Seasons Provence Launches In-House Art Tour

Heads up, art fans! The Four Seasons Resort Provence at Terre Blanche is launching an audio art tour to help guests explore the Resort’s private art collection. Visitors can pick up an MP3 player from the Concierge desk and take the tour in English or French. (We hear a German version will be coming soon.)

The English tour has been recorded by art historian Roger Bevan, who is the Director of the London-based Exhibition Circle and senior contemporary art market correspondent to The Art Newspaper. The French tour, meanwhile, has been recorded by journalist and TV presenter Laurence Ostolaza.

The collection includes works by Jean Dubuffet, Tony Cragg, André Masson, Antony Gormley, Lynn Chadwick and Arnulf Rainer. There are more than eighty sculptures and thirty paintings on display in the public areas, with more in suites and rooms.

A small number of the pieces in the public areas have been commissioned, while the rest have been handpicked and sourced. As well as the more established artists, designer (and curator) Memo von Sachsen Gessaphe has also showcased work from local emerging artists.
