After a sojourn of study in Paris with his friend and mentor, Impressionist Camille Pissarro, Paul Cezanne returned to Aix-en-Provence for the remainder of his life. He created the groundwork of the Post-Impressionist period, forming the rudiments of Cubism. His work is a must for any artist to study, from his repetitive and dramatic brushstrokes, his simplistic use of geometrics and his almost architectural style. Montagne Sainte-Victoire at Estaque was the subject of many of his later paintings and formed the "Constructive Period" as he explored the use of small brushstrokes to build intricate visuals that contained a light and airy movement. Cezanne's composition stresses the observation of nature within the context of classical composition. It is this very conundrum that is valuable to other artists to study at length to transform their own work. This video provides the unique experience of learning from the man who was called, "the father of us all" by Matisse and Picasso.
