|Description:||Paul Cezanne laid the foundation for modern art and the artists who value his influence on their work reads like a role call of 20th century art. Both Matisse and Picasso said that Cézanne “is the father of us all”.
This talk with Laurence examines his life and work and how his art progressed from its conventional beginnings to capturing all the complexities that an eye observes by rejecting classic artistic elements such as pictorial arrangements, single view perspectives, and outlines that enclosed colour.
Cézanne once said, “With an apple I want to astonish Paris,” and he succeeded in shocking, amazing and delighting the world.
