A Tribute to Cezanne

"He set out to reinvigorate painting and he did just that. The French artist became the conduit between the Impressionist past and the Modernist future that was fully ushered in by the likes of Picasso and Matisse, both of whom revered C├ęzanne’s work. But the subject matter that propelled such success in the artist’s career was oftentimes relatively humble—apples, figures in the landscape, and kitchen scenes."

Artist Daily blog talks about Cezanne today and I am reminded how wonderful his work was!!! Still Life with Apples was painted in 1879. "Artist Daily" is a nice blog...if you google it I am sure you can find it.
