About Paul Cezanne

 Q:   Ask a Question about About Paul Cezanne       
Paul Cezanne (1839-1906) was a French Post-Impressionist painter, a leading figure in the development of modem art.

He broke away from the Impressionists spontaneous vision to develop a style that captured not only light and life, but the structure of natural forms, in landscapes, still lifes, portraits, and his series of bathers.

He was born in Aix-en-Provence, where he studied, and was a friend of the novelist Emile Zola.

In 1872 Cezanne met Pissarro and settled near him in Pontoise, outside Paris, but soon abandoned Impressionism. His series of paintings of Mont Sainte-Victoire in Provence from the 1880s into the 1900s show an increasing fragmentation of the painting's surface and a movement towards abstraction, with layers of colour and square brushstrokes achieving monumental solidity. He was greatly revered by early abstract painters, notably Picasso and Braque.
