Paul Cézanne is one of the most significant French painters of the second half of the nineteenth century, is generally held to be “the father of modern art”. I went to see the exhibition showed in Thyssen Museum in Madrid lat week.
I loved the part where most of the painting show a “bend in the road” . He loved to be outside & was obsess with fields & mountains around Aix, where he lived. He walked with a backback full of paint, brushes & paper. He preferred the old roads & paths that adapted to the country landscape, not the modern roads. He liked the surprises & unexpected views of the site.
I also liked some of his latest art, where the paintings seamed unfinished, with blanck spaces & where the brush strokes where more abstract & expressive.
I found that the exhibition was a bit small.& some of my favorite Cezanne’s paintings were not there! But still I enjoyed it!
Here I show some of my favorites Cezanne’s paintings & a picture of Cezanne himself.
