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.

I use these markers for children's illustrations, and they are wonderful. I do wish there were more color options for colors. I've found the light colors too few, especially when working with skin tones These pens last a very long time and work well with all sorts of papers. The tip options make this a great marker for precision coloring.

These magnets are awesome! I use them for numerous things, gluing them to flashlights so they won't rattle in a car. Glued one on a old fine paint brush to sweep off my keyboard on my computer, storing it on a file cabinet in the room. Hold a piece of metal to be welded on a vehicle. But the glue utilized must be strong, for the first stuff I used, the magnet tore loose from the flashlight. I use JB Weld-minute weld epoxy.

I have used these brushes for years , love them and I have sold many paintings using these brushes. So I think they are a great bargain!
