Artist: Paul Cézanne
Dates: 1839 - 1906
Nationality: French
Style: Post Impressionism

French painter, Paul Cézanne, usually painted still-lifes and developed the style of using geometric shapes as the basis for his paintings. He believed that everything in the world was made up of either a sphere, a cone, a cylinder or a cube. He began many of his works with these basic shapes layering thick paint with strong outlines to build form. This style of painting influenced artists who came after Cézanne such as Braque and Picasso who painted in a style known as Cubism.

Here are three paintings by this great French painter.
