One of the pioneers of post-impressionism, Cezanne (1839-1906) has exerted significant influence on the development of art, being described by Monet as ” the “greatest of us all” and by Picasso as “the father of us all”. Hallmarks of his style include short, visible brushstrokes, exaggerated colouring and a willingness to play with the conventional rules of perspective. This exhibition at Tate Modern collects over 80 works from around the world, including 20 never previously exhibited in the UK, aiming to present a comprehensive portrait of Cezanne’s career.
The Guardian gives the exhibition a five-star review, describing it as “magnificent”.
