In the words of Matisse and Picasso, Paul Cézanne was the 'father of us all', his approach to colour and perspective paving the way for later modernist art movements such as Cubism and Expressionism, as he moved beyond the figurative tradition and towards abstraction.
This book charts Cézanne's journey as an artist, his involvement with the Impressionist movement and his importance as a leading Post-Impressionist. It explores the places where he lived and worked, his personal life and friendships, and the artistic influences that helped to shape his remarkable vision of the world. This biographical detail is set alongside a selection of his brilliant paintings, allowing you to trace the evolution of his artwork.
