The Bibemus Quarries refers to a rocky plateau, part of which was used to build Aix in the 17th and 18th centuries. Cezanne spent a great deal of time here portraying unusual orange rocks in geometrical shapes. These works heralded a new avant-garde art movement, Cubism, which gives solid forms to our nature without trying to imitate it with lines and colors. While walking in the area, you will notice a stone cabin there. Cézanne rented it in order to avoid having to travel daily to and from Aix with his paints and brushes.
