Modern Art:(Paul Cezanne)

Some call him the father of Modern Art. After fifty years of the most radical change in art from images to free abstraction, Cezanne's paintings, wich looks old-fasioned today in its attachments to nuture,mantains itself fresh and stimulating to young painters of our time. He has produced no school, buthe has given and impulse directly or indirectly to almost every new movement since he died. His power to excite artist of different tendency and temperanment os due, I think, to the fact that he realized with equal fullness so many different size of his art.It has often been true leading modern painters that they developed a single idea with great force.


May I repeat what I have told you here:
treat nature by means of the cylinder, the sphere, the cone, everything brought into proper perspective so that each side of an object or a plane is directed towards a central point. Lines parallel to the horizon give breadth... lines perpendicular to this horizon give depth. But nature for us men is more depth than surface, whence the need to introduce into our light vibrations, represented by the reds and yellows, a sufficient amount of blueness to give the feel of air."

Paul C├ęzanne to Emile Bernard, 15 April,1904
