Paul Cézanne was post-impressionist painter. His earlier works were more violent, and were produced from his imagination. Once he met Camille Pissarro, he learned to use smoother brushstrokes, and brighter colors. Cézanne also began painting outside more. Camille Pissarro was extremely influential to Cézanne, because his work taught Cézanne how to add structure to his paintings. Cézanne's work was extremely structured, and it was because of this it would take him months to finish one painting.
