Paul Cézanne

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. 

This painting is called, Madame Cézanne in a Red Armchair. Madame Cézanne was a frequent model, and appeared in almost 30 paintings. Cézanne often used a lot of different colors to create contrast. If you look closely, you can see patches of blue and green on her face
In his later years, Cézanne painted more outside, than he had before. This painting, called 'Morning View of L'Estaque Against the Sunlight' is an example of that. Another theme in his paintings is the bold brushstrokes he used, which he applied with a palette knife.
