Paul Cézanne (1839-1906): An artist whose work many historians consider as the beginning of modern art, Paul Cézanne redefined how compositions are structured in painting. His work in both still life and landscape radically shifted away from simple representation of a scene into a complex construction. Bridging the gap between Impressionism and Post Impressionism, Cézanne’s painting style would anticipate the Cubist revolution that would occur at the beginning of the twentieth century. Although Cézanne was associated with several art movements, he worked in near isolation, painting scenes close to his home in Provence, France.
