Paul Cezanne Art Project

It can be seen how he experimented with Impressionism in 'The Garden at Les Lauves', and working his way to paint with geometrical shapes, rather that fine details. This is seen in the simple, rectangular forms of the houses, and the indication of fields by rectangular and triangular shapes in 'The Bay of Marseilles'. 'Woman with a Coffeepot', is another example of Cezanne using forms and color, rather than the effect of light on an object, as seen in the geometrical shapes of the coffeepot, coffecup, and the woman's body. The woman is drawn with angular forms, rather than painted to show a woman's natural curves.
