Post-Impressionist Cézanne, the Father of Modern Art

« back to classes page

Paul Cézanne is rightly credited with paving the way for the emergence of twentieth century modernism, both visually and conceptually.  His work constitutes the most powerful and essential link between the ephemeral aspects of impressionism and the more materialist modern movements.  He laid the groundwork for what would ultimately become cubism.  Pablo Picasso, who was not overly generous with praise for other artists, dubbed Cezanne “the father of us all.”  Though his genius was not recognized until the last years of his life — and he was ridiculed and derided more than any other artist -- he had a vision and he remained determined to see it through, against all odds.
