Life and work of the famous painter Paul Cézanne
The French painter and graphic artist Paul Cézanne was born on 19.01.1839 in Aix-en-Provence and died on 22.10.1906 in his native town. Cézanne is one of the most famous painters in the world. You can see his influence on the shapes and designs in the works of artists belonging to the late Cubism epoch such as e.g. Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Georges Braque and André Derain. He applied analytical methods and tried to minimize the visible reality to its basic geometric forms. Paul Cézanne was himself influenced by the paintings of the French Romanticism and initial Realism (E. Delacroix, G. Courbet) and later on, he turned to Impressionism (C. Pissarro, E. Manet). Paul Cézanne returned to his home in the South of France. He developed his style here, in which shape and colour acquired a new meaning. Cézannes was in contact with artists like Pissarro, Monet and Renoir and also the gallery owner Ambroise Vollard till the late 1890s. They were also the first buyers of his paintings. Cézannes work got wider exposure in 1895 with Vollards Parisian Gallery; he was now on his way to becoming a cult figure among the young Postimpressionist painters. Cézanne became the most important pioneer of the art of the 20th century with his famous paintings of the Provencal landscapes of Mont Sainte Victoire and with his still life, portraits and figure paintings and other landscape paintings. He came to be known as the “Father of modern art”. In spite of widespread reputation, Paul Cézanne led a solitary life till his death.
