He is one of my favourite painters....along with Rembrandt and Vermeer.
Excellent taste my friend. In this picture Cezanne probably used mixes of only the three primary colours! Picasso called him "The master of us all".
what pure visual pleasure this is... the nuances in colors and tones and depth and shading are just incredible... so so much to be inspired by ... i would love to have sat for hours just to watch someone like this paint in person...
And amazingly he managed to extract those nuances from a very limited palette.I think you can see in this paniting how he had begun to prefigure cubism. The surface is beginning to be broken into a series of geometric patterns.
Beautiful. Thank you for sharing, Bazza.
.....and thank you for visiting Mimi. It's like old times for me!
Love Cezanne. Did you see an exhibit recently, or just feel moved to share?I posted a few of my favorites after the Cezanne exhibit in DC a few years ago.http://penthaslist.blogspot.com/2006/03/cezanne.html
Alicia: I have been heavily into Cezanne for years and often posted this sort of thing on my previous blog.I find a little buzz of pleasure every time I see one of his pictures. I looked at what you posted and noticed that it looks as though he was working with exactly the same palette as my choice.Keep watching this space for more!
At the moment yearning for this brand of gentle lull...
Alicia MBB: It seems odd to me that Cezanne's pictures never seem to reveal his unsatisfactory private-life like, say, Van Gogh's did.I always find them peaceful and stimulating at the same time.
