Approx 32x38. Edition of 95. The signature is in the plate. Custom framed. A leading French Post-Impressionist, Paul Cezanne bridged the way from 19th century Impressionism to a revolutionary new world of 20th century Cubism. Both Matisse and Picasso are quoted saying Cezanne was the father of us all. Although his radical departures were under appreciated and even ridiculed in his time, Cezannes studies of visual perception, geometric simplification, and experimentation with complex fractured forms kept his style changing significantly over his lifetime. Paul Cezanne was an eccentric, solitary enigma, often working in isolation, removed even from his own family.
