Cézanne & Paris at the Luxembourg Museum
If the pioneering Post-Impressionist (‘the father of us all’ said Picasso) is more associated with the South of France, where his emblematic motif the Mont St Victoire is located, Cézanne spent his life travelling between Aix en Provence and Paris. Divided into five sections, this exhibition of about 80 works charts his relationship with the capital: Following Zola to Paris; Paris, the City beyond the Walls, near Auver; The Temptation of Paris; Pose like an Apple, Still Lifes and Portraits; The Paths of Silence. More than any other artist, he left his stamp on modern art: avant-garde artists from the Post-Impressionists to Kandinsky looked on him as a forerunner.
