The Solid School of Impressionism | Cezanne

Paul Cezanne, a famous French painter and late impressionist, has been praised as the "Father of Art Nouveau" since the end of the 19th century. As a pioneer of modern art, western modern painters call him "Father of Modern Art", "Father of Modeling" or "Father of Modern Painting".

His pursuit and expression of the sense of volume opened up a train of thought for "Cubism" ; Cezanne attached great importance to the authenticity of color vision, and his unique observation of natural color "Objectively" was quite different from the previous "Intellectually" or "Subjectively" painters who observed natural color.

Most of his works are the embodiment of his artistic ideas, showing a solid geometric sense of body, ignoring the accuracy of the texture and shape of objects, emphasizing the heavy and steady sense of volume and the overall relationship between objects. Sometimes he abandons the independence and authenticity of individuals in order to seek harmony among various relationships.

"When the color is rich to a certain extent, the shape becomes the same." Cezanne often repeats this sentence when he talks about his paintings. In the group of Impressionist innovators, he carried out a personal art revolution.

Cezanne's paintings, if the Impressionist painter's work is to blur the outline, and Cezanne is to restore or re-establish the outline. He pays great attention to the solidity of the image and the depth of the picture. For this reason, he completely abandoned the linear perspective method introduced by Brunelleschi in the field of painting. The sense of volume of objects occupies a dominant position in painting again, and this sense of volume is not expressed by lines, but by the author's free combination of color blocks. For this reason, Cezanne is called the "The Solid School of Impressionism".
