Paul Cezanne Still Life

Paul Cezanne was a French artist noted for his still-lifes and development of the style of painting that utilized shapes at their most elemental form. He regarded the world as being composed of  cylinders, spheres, cones, and cubes. These shapes adorned his many pieces, and he created them with thick paint, using solid outlines to build form. Our lesson commenced with a discussion of Cezanne, where he was born, and the most prominent characteristics within his works. We then talked about what a cylinder, sphere, cone, and cube were, and looked for these shapes around the front yard. Next, we went to work! Using Apples and Oranges as our inspiration, we sought to mimic Cezanne’s mastery of form and shape!
