Paul Cézanne Printable (** for premium members only)
Paul Cézanne (1839 – 1906) was a Post-Impressionist French painter who bridged the gap between the Impressionism movement of the 19th century and the Cubism style of 20th century. Although not famous in his lifetime, Cézanne is now considered one of the most important and influential painters in modern art history. Both Matisse and Picasso called him “the father of us all.”
Art Institute of Chicago: Paul Cézanne
As this Art Institute of Chicago biography reveals, Paul Cézanne “was a shy man who adopted a deliberately crude, rustic manner to keep people away.” As part of the museum’s Art Explorer website, you can create a free online account and create a scrapbook of artists and artworks that interest you. This resource includes a short biography, a gallery of nine paintings, and a dozen critical analyses of artworks including Madame Cézanne in a Yellow Armchair and Basket of Apples.
MoMA: Paul Cézanne
Paul Cézanne “epitomized the reaction against [Impressionism] when he declared: ‘I wanted to make of Impressionism something solid and enduring, like the art in museums.'” He accomplished this by creating the style that became known as Post-Impressionism. At this MoMA virtual exhibit, you can explore a gallery of his works, although “he rarely dated his works (and often did not sign them either).”
Paul Cézanne: The Complete Works
With hundreds of images of Cézanne’s paintings available, you can really get a feel for the artist’s style. There are many still lifes, landscapes, and a half dozen self-portraits. Many of the paintings are very dark, revealing how this shy and unhappy man felt about the world around him. The site also includes a biography and a selection of links to more Cézanne sites.
