Must See Paul Cezanne Art Exhibitions in 2021 – 2022

Because of the COVID-19 outbreak, many art museums around the world are closed & many exhibitions are being rescheduled. In the meantime, you can still enjoy many art museums online. Press here for details.

I will try to keep the dates of the exhibitions listed below updated, but please understand that dates may change (again) because of these uncertain times.

Paul Cézanne was a French Post-Impressionism painter. Ironically though, Paul Cezanne barely sold any of his paintings during his life time.

However, today Cezanne  is celebrated as a forerunner to Cubism and a predecessor of Fauvism. Given his prominence in these revolutionary art movements, he is considered as one of the most influential and important artists in the history of modern art.

Pablo Picasso, born 42 years after Paul Cezanne, said:

“My one and only master . . . Cézanne was like the father of us all.”

Exhibition: Cézanne: The Master of Provence

When: 19 May 2021 – 2 January 2022
Where: Carrieres de Lumieres, Provence, France

Cezanne, the French post-impressionism painter from Provence was a self-taught artist. In his lifetime, he produced more than 900 canvases and 400 watercolors. He mainly painted portraits, still and landscapes.

The Provincial artist was strongly influenced by Delacroix and Courbet during his early years. However he soon shifted towards the new art form of impressionism. He adopted the impressionism techniques of painting landscapes outdoors and using bright colors and coarse brushstrokes. Paul Cezanne soon developed his own artistic expression of form and color. He started capturing his subjects in a more abstract viewpoint, unknowingly laying the groundwork to the future art movements of Cubism and Fauvism.

Exhibition: The EY Exhibition – Cezanne

Where: Tate Modern, London
When: 6 October 2022 until 26 February 2023

This exhibition will be focusing on the many tensions and contradictions in Cezanne’s art works. It aims to learn about the artist, who was an ambitious young painter from Provence in Southern France. He eagerly tried to make his mark in the art epicenter of Paris, but quickly escaped, returning to his beloved and tranquil Provence.

The exhibition will show how Cezanne struggled, like many others of his time, in seeking official recognition on one hand, but finding his own original artistic language on the other hand. His ground-breaking still lifes, landscapes and portraits gave the green light to future artists to break all the rules. Because of Cezanne, the history of painting was never the same again.
