Paul Cezanne Art Exhibitions Showing in 2020
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.”
