Portraits By Paul Cézanne

Exhibition June 13 − September 24, 2017
On 13 June Paris The musée d'orsay opened the exhibition of portraits of the authorship of the famous French painter Paul Cezanne.

During his life the artist painted about 200 portraits, twenty-six of them depicting himself, a twenty-nine – his wife, Hortense fick. Cezanne considered a post impressionist, but his methods of building forms and color, analytical view of nature had a great influence on the fauves, Cubists and the next generation of the avant-garde. Matisse and Picasso even considered him their "common father"!

Works are exhibited in chronological order from "Uncle Dominic" to "the Gardener Vallier". This allows us to study different periods of art by Paul cézanne and track changes in his artistic manner.

Portraits – this is probably the most personal part of the cultural heritage of each artist, so that viewers have the opportunity to get acquainted not only with the paintings of cézanne, but also with himself.

Exhibition, works for which were provided by private collections and prestigious museums in the world, will run until September 24.
