Paul Cezanne Art

Paul Cezanne Art

The French painter Paul Cezanne is one of the greatest of the Post-Impressionists, whose works and ideas were influential in the aesthetic development of many 20'th century artists and art movements, especially Cubism. Cezanne's art, misunderstood and discredited by the public during most of his life, grew out of Impressionism and eventually challenged all the conventional values of painting in the 19'th century through its insistence on personal expression and on the integrity of the painting itself. Paul Cezanne is regarded today as one of the greatest fore-runners of modern painting, both for the way that he evolved of putting down on canvas exactly what his eye saw in nature and for the qualities of pictorial form that he achieved through a unique treatment of space, mass, and color.

Cezanne used color with passion and creativity, giving his brush strokes structure, solidity, and durability. Cezanne knew that colors in nature and their combination with natural light could never be truly reproduced. He saw himself as an interpreter who had to accept the limitations of the medium and tried to transfer the images onto canvas the best way he could. He attempted to bridge the natural and artistic worlds. In his striving for perfection, this meant retouching the entire picture to recreate the all-important harmony. He sometimes worked on the same picture for years, never satisfied with the results. He seldom signed his works, because he never considered them finished. Those he did sign had his mark of approval.

Cezanne was versatile. In his pursuit of perfection and a unique style, he experimented a lot. Cezanne does not draw his picture before painting it, instead, he creates space and depth of perspective by means of planes of color, which are freely associated and at the same time contrasted and compared. The facets create not just one but many perspectives, and in this way volume comes once again to dominate the composition, no longer a product of the line but rather of the color itself. Things have color and they have weight, and the color and mass of each affects the weight of the other. It was to understand these rules that Cezanne dedicated his life.

Cezanne's contribution to modern art was a new concept of realism and pictorial form. Painting for him was the "realization" of impressions received from nature, the translation of unpaintable facts of space into colors and shapes. It is the tension between actuality and illusion, description and abstraction, reality and invention, that makes Cezanne's most unassuming subjects so profoundly satisfying and exciting, and which provided a legacy for a revolution of form that led the way for modern art. By the time of his death in 1906, Cezanne's art had begun to be shown and seen across Europe, and it became a fundamental influence on the Fauves, the Cubists, and virtually all advanced art of the early 20'th century.
