A bit of background
In this film, we explore the career and work of a pivotal figure in modern art. From his early self-portraits, to his landscapes, Cezanne's artwork gave painting a new lease of life. The history of painting was never to be the same again.
We look at Cezanne in the context of his time, exploring his career and the creative circle that surrounded him, as well as his groups of works that focus on particular themes, including his radical still lifes and studies of bathers.
Cezanne's work has always strongly resonated with other artists, and this legacy continues into the present day.
