The paintings of Paul Cezanne (1839-1906) have come to be regarded as representative of the birth of a pictorial style whose originality and form would eventually lead to a profound new painting aesthetic that brought together human, personal, and natural elements. Largely influenced by Camille Pissarro, this unique and independent painter sought to examine his love of nature which he shared with his impressionist colleagues, with his desire to explore his surroundings through form, passionate use of color, and a measured brushstroke. Reproduced in this illustrated volume is a large selection of Cezanne's groundbreaking masterpieces, as well as depictions of subjects he was most fond of painting.
