Inscription. Emile Gardon (1898 – 1980) a toujours vécu dans la maison familiale qui fait l’angle de cette montée d’escaliers, parfois taillés dans le rocher, et qui vous ramènent a la Vieille Eglise. Il a maintes et maintes fois parcouru ces chemins à pied Vieille Eglaise, Belvédère, rue Droite, les Croix et ...le Luberon à la recherche de son inspiration, de la paix, du silence, de la limpidité qui transparaissent dans son oeuvre. Il est classé parmi les peintres naifs. Il a souvent été considéré comme le Douanier Rousseau provençal, sans pour autant qu’il existe une veritable ressemblance picturale, mais tous deux ont évoqué une certaine vision de paradis terrestre Emile a peint Bonnieux et le Luberon avec beaucoup de coeur et beaucoup d’amour. ********** Vous êtes dans la rue de l’ancien presbytère (autrefois de Clastres). Des vestiges du XVeme siècle se trouvent un peu loin sur votre gauche et, en suivant la rue, vous retrouverez le Belvédère (point 8 de notre circuit.
