Cezanne was a French post-Impressionist artist who is often considered to be one of the most important artists in influencing the formation of the Modern art movement. Born in 1839, Cezanne attended College Bourbon, studied drawing with Joseph Gibert at Ecole Municipale de Dessin and later in Paris at the Academie Suisse. There he learned by copying some of the masterpieces of artists such as Titian, Rubens, and Delcroix. Because Paul Cezanne was living and working in Paris during the time of many of the famous impressionists, he became friends and acquaintances with many of them but was unhappy that his work was not gaining the widespread acceptance of the others. He would never achieve the success of many of his contemporaries during his lifetime, but after his death was recognized as a highly accomplished, and highly acclaimed painter who would be a major influence in the development of newer forms of art. Paul Cezanne paintings are often considered to be expert in their composition and form because his paintings were more focused on the perfection of what he viewed as the formal elements rather than creating crowd-pleasing works of art. One of the foundational beliefs which can be seen in the oil paintings of Paul Cezanne was his insistence that geometry controlled the universe and should possess a very clear influence in the construction of a painting. This belief is one that would lead later artists to embrace very geometric types of modern painting which would come to be known as Cubism, an even stricter application of one of Cezanne’s controlling philosophies about art. Early in his artistic career, the paintings of Paul Cezanne were considered to have violent and fantasy-related subjects that were deeply pigmented with a heavy application of paint; however, as his exposure to the contemporary work of the Impressionists, his work began to shift towards less dark landscapes and still lifes. It was during this period of his work that Paul Cezanne oil paintings were displayed with Impressionist exhibitions; something which would only happen a few times during his life. Because the Paul Cezanne paintings were less delicate than the works of many other Impressionists, he began to move toward a new style which would become the most characteristically Cezanne artwork of his entire career. The evolution in his style was noticeable due to the dimension he suggested in his work using light and darkness, further use of geometric shapes in his canvasses, and a heavy use of brush stroke that makes the painting lean more toward the abstract that simply a first impression. After his death, some of the most influential paintings of Paul Cezanne were and still are titled: Mont Saint Victoire, Trees and Houses, The Card Players, The Bridge at Maincy, Big Trees, House of Pere Lacroix, Chestnut Trees and Farm, and The Bathers. Through a careful evalution of Paul Cezanne artwork, it becomes possible to view the clear distinctions and differences as his work evolved into one of the most respected bodies of work of his era, particularly in the mature version of his style of painting.
