Details     Description
   
Artist C├ęzanne, Paul Cezanne belongs with the Impressionists, not primarily because of his adherence to their theories, but because he was one of the rebels who participated in their first exhibitions. By the time he painted House in Provence Cezanne had turned away from Impressionist practices. Rather than striving only for evanescent effects of light which dissolve forms, he used vivid colour to create an “Impressionism of forms,” evoking, through shifting planed, sensations of solidity and depth in space. In solitude in the south of France this dedicated hermit-artist passed his last years painting his new vision of nature, rarely satisfied with results. His grandiose experiment, appreciated by few in his lifetime, revolutionised modern art.
