Cézanne did not only paint Provençal scenes. In the course of twenty trips to Paris, the artist learned a style of painting that he would continue to develop in Provence, attracting interest and praise from critics, art dealers and collectors. The 80 works in this exhibition provide insight into the southern painter’s time in Paris.
.
The first section describes his arrival in Paris, his training in the city and early paintings, taking a close look at his mastery of landscape painting and use of Impressionist techniques. It goes on to explore Cézanne’s nudes. Working at a time when erotic paintings were becoming increasingly popular, he experimented with new ways to portray female nudes and invented his particular pictorial representation of them.
.
Still lifes also make up a significant portion of Cézanne’s work, and the exhibition spotlights the way he creates space and depth of perspective, and his masterly use of colour and shapes in his depictions of objects as well as his portraits and erotic paintings.
