Cezanne is a great French artist who lived in Provence at the turn of the century. He was a representative of post-impressionism. He painted landscapes, was famous for his portraits. His canvases are not like any other. He did not depict the usual characters in his portraits, clearly emphasizing and writing down the details of the image. His people were deformed, lost their balance, the outlines are not clear.
Also, the artist used a rather gloomy tone. With his manner of painting, he wanted to prove his individual point of view, which did not coincide with anyone.
Portraits of Madame Cezanne, this is one of the most important creations of the author. During his life he created more than forty of them. Madame Cezanne is his wife, who was eleven years younger than the artist. She became an inspiration for creating his canvases.
Although, according to the memories of his relatives, Cezanne, his wife was not perfect in terms of matrimonial life. She spent a lot of time away from her husband, because she was very fond of secular evenings and rich life. But still, she had a lot of good character traits. When her husband could not sleep, she sat beside her and read him for hours. Madame Cezanne supported his work, she also presented her son to the French artist.
The portrait of 1895, Madame Cezanne is depicted sitting in a beautiful, strict black dress. Her head is decorated with a secular, elegant hat. Which once again underlines her love for a beautiful life.
To create the canvas Cezanne used his favorite dark colors. He did not change the tradition of facial image is not clear. In this regard, looking at the canvases of the author, it is impossible to understand what his wife was externally. Did she have a beautiful face and cute features. His images distort the image of his wife. It is like a blur.
