Event details

Cézanne. Site / Non-site.
4 February  -18 May  

Paul Cézanne (1839–1906) was a French Post-Impressionist artist whose work laid the foundations for the transition from the 19th century art scene to a new and radically different world of art in the 20th century. Style-wise Cézanne is considered by many to be a bridge between impressionism and cubism. He experimented with the simplification of forms into spheres, cones and cubes and was interested in the phenomenon of binocular vision - he would often include various visual representations of the same object in order to provide the viewer with a more nutritious aesthetic experience. Misunderstood by many of his era, (his work was refused by the official Paris Salon year after year) when Cézanne eventually started receiving recognition he shunned it and moved to the country in Aix where he would remain until one day, after painting through a downpour for two hours, he contracted pneumonia and game-over. This exhibition is a great chance to experience one of the most important and influential artists of the 19th/20th centuries.
