National Portrait Gallery announces major exhibition of Cézanne Portraits: October 2017

The major new exhibition, Cézanne Portraitswill bring together over 50 of Cézanne’s portraits from collections across the world.  Paul Cézanne (1839-1906) painted almost 200 portraits, including 26 of himself and 29 of his wife, Hortense Fiquet.  Cézanne is considered one of the most influential artists of the nineteenth century.  Generally categorised as a ‘Post-Impressionist’, he has influenced the art of Cubists, Fauvists, and successive generations of avant-garde artists.  Here are examples of a Self Portrait (1885 – 86) and portraits of Madame Cézanne (1873) and of the Boy in a Red Waistcoat (1888 -90).
