Collection: Paul Cézanne

French painter Paul Cézanne (1839 - 1906) ranks among the most well-known Post-Impressionists. His work had a profound effect on the modern art of the 20th-century, and his style was highly influential to later Cubist and Fauve artists. Drawing upon many of the ideas he gained from the Impressionists, such as painting from nature, exploring light, and capturing fleeting moments, Cézanne's work went beyond this to include a deep exploration of personal style and expression. His works are known for their loose brushstrokes, layers of paint that create architectural volumes, and use of color and light to create moods. Late in his career, he painted exclusively in Aix-en-Provence in the south of France, where he died in 1906.
