Paul Cezanne (b.1839-d.1906) French Artist

Paul Cezanne was born in France in 1839. He was a Post-Impressionist painter whose work shaped the transition from 19th century Impressionism to the new and different art in the 20th century. A quote attributed to both French artist Henri Matisse and Spanish artist Pablo Picasso identifies Cezanne as “the father of us all”. His work shows a mastery of design, with repetitive and sensitive brushstrokes that are clearly recognizable. Notable works include Still Life with Apples and Oranges (1895-1900), Woman in a Green Hat (1894-1895) and The Cardplayers (1892). Cezanne died in 1906. His work became well-known and admired, and the art world soon identified him as one of the most important artists of the 19th century, and an inspiring force to Cubism.
