Paul Cezanne

La route (Le mur d’enceinte). The Road (The Old Wall)

Artwork Detail

Paul Cezanne was one of the most important painters of the second half of the 19th century, and often said to be the father of modern art. He had no formal training, working outside the Academic tradition which dominated Paris. La route was painted in an impressionist manner, some time between 1875-76, when Cezanne was living in Aix-in-Provence. Unlike the Impressionists, however, Cezanne wanted to capture the sensations he felt in the landscape. The Auckland Art Gallery has four works on paper by Cezanne.
