Paul Cézanne, 1895

Paul Cézanne, 1895

Self Portrait,
Water Color

Son of a well to do merchant turned banker, he had to resist parental disapproval to embark on his career; but once having won the battle, unlike Monet or Gauguin he did not need to struggle for mere survival.

As we view the splendid control and serenity of his mature paintings, it is difficult to realize that he was a man of violent disposition, given to sudden rages and on occasion, to hallucinatory dreams.
