Thank you for this video, it has given me new insights and inspiration. What a man and painter! I can see his dogged and persistent and resolute integrity to his vision. It is one of the most difficult things to do. Much easier to ‘ go with the flow’ But to remain true to your own search…brilliant man – doggedly struggling to understand his own perception! A struggle to see through the veil of perception to ‘see’ the reality!
when you see a Cezanne from two inches away, you then realize what a great artist he was……it’s so mysterious why, how art touches our souls, words are not important…….Welsh artist..UK
Paul Cézanne (US: /seɪˈzæn/ or UK: /sɪˈzæn/; French: [pɔl sezan]; 19 January 1839 – 22 October 1906) was a French artist and Post-Impressionist painter whose work laid the foundations of the transition from the 19th-century conception of artistic endeavor to a new and radically different world of art in the 20th century. Cézanne’s often repetitive, exploratory brushstrokes are highly characteristic and clearly recognizable. He used planes of colour and small brushstrokes that build up to form complex fields. The paintings convey Cézanne’s intense study of his subjects.
Cézanne is said to have formed the bridge between late 19th-century Impressionism and the early 20th century’s new line of artistic enquiry, Cubism. Both Matisse and Picasso are said to have remarked that Cézanne “is the father of us all.”
