Paul Cezanne - Self Portrait (1875)

Paul Cezanne (January 19, 1839- October 22, 1906) was a French artist and Post-Impressionist painter whose works 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. Cezanne can be said to form the bridge between the late 19th century impressionism and the early 20th century's new line of artistic enquiry, Cubism. The line attributed to both Matisse and Picasso that Cezanne "is the father of us all" cannot be easily dismissed.

Cezanne's works demonstrate a mastery of design, colour, composition and draftsmanship. His often repetitive, sensitive and exploratory brush strokes that build up to form complex fields, at once both a direct expression of the sensations of the observing eye and an abstraction from observed nature. The paintings convey Cezanne's intense study of his subjects, a searching gaze and a dogged struggle to deal with the complexity of human visual perception. He died on October 22, 1906.
