First of all I would like to say that the brushes were for my husband who is an artist and he was delighted that I found something new or that he did not know about. You made his day! If he needs supplies in the future, I shall again look at your site as I find it impressive and quantitative. Thanks again

Paul Cézanne

Paul Cézanne

(1839 - 1906)
Born: Aix-en-Provence, France
Style: Post-Impressionism
Famous Works:
  • Mont Sainte-Victoire seen from Bellevue (c. 1895)
  • The Card Players (1894-1895)
  • The Bathers (1898-1905)
Paul Cézanne's wealthy father, who had plans for his son to be a lawyer, not a painter, gave him a traditional education. Cézanne's mother supported her son's dreams of art, and he eventually moved to Paris. His start was rocky, and despite a friendship with writer Emile Zola, Cézanne returned to his hometown Aix-en-Provence. The artist had many such false starts, and could not firmly establish himself among the Impressionists. Instead of aiming to capture the immediacy of the Impressionists' paintings, Cézanne was interested in the shapes and structures of his subjects, and he had an amazing ability to distort them into a conglomerate of small geometrical shapes. This approach was revolutionary and was only refined as his career continued. Cézanne's reputation as a landscape painter was complimented by his vast body of still-life subjects. These paintings have the same distilled approach of his landscape paintings, transforming the collections of jugs, drapery, and other objects into a kind of interior landscape. The artist enjoyed very little popularity and little critical acclaim. Despite his strong appreciation of traditional French painters like Nicolas Poussin, most collectors considered him rebellious and radical. While Cézanne was clearly ahead of his time, an 1895 one-man show in Paris introduced his work to enthusiastic young artists. He eventually became incredibly influential among contemporary painters, and after his death his work became the main source of inspiration to Cubism giant Pablo Picasso, Fauvist founder Henri Matisse and even the Swiss painter Paul Klee.

This is a really great product

Working with Pebeo products is so much fun and I love the different affects that can be achieved by using Prisme, Vitrail and glitter together. Cons: Some colors in the Pebeo Prisme line became thick and gooey after 4 to 6 months of storage. I attempted to thin the paint with paint thinner but it was still too thick. I wrote the Pebeo Customer Service Department and have yet to hear from them (it's been approximately one week now). Regardless, when I want to create something unique I will continue to use them.

As a cartoonist, I've found only the 100 nib to be one that acts like a brush in that it gives me the thick and thin line that I desire, and a very thin line as well. It handles well and is very flexible.
