Paul Cézanne (1839 -1906) documented the terrain of Provence like a loving testament to his homeland, but his paintings, with thick parallel brushstrokes running into bare canvas, and planes of color intersecting in improbable spaces, betray the conflicts and contradictions that marked his life. His experimentation and unfettered talent disrupted painting in ways that inspired the next generation of avant-garde painters. The Short Biographies series from Applewood’s Benna Books imprint features short, intriguing, and entertaining biographies of world-renowned figures. Each beautiful hardcover book includes an interesting retelling of a single person's life, suitable for young adults and adults alike. These little gems will become beloved souvenirs of a favorite artist or a memorable trip to a museum.
