Cézanne: The Painter's Wife, Note Card Portfolio

About the Artist

Nineteenth-century post-impressionist painter Paul Cézanne is renowned for his radiant landscapes, intense portraits, and complex still lifes. His paintings of apples, card players, and the landscape of Mont Sainte-Victoire, which he saw from his window in Provence, France, are some of the best-known images in Western art. His mature works are striking for their vivid palette, sensitive brushstrokes, and swirling, unstable compositions full of impetuosity and vigor that paved the way for the advent of cubism and abstract painting.

Description

This note card set features two portraits Paul Cézanne painted of his wife: Portrait of Madame Cézanne (1888–1890) and Woman with Green Hat (Madame Cézanne) (1891–1892). Cézanne may be best known for his landscapes, but he also painted some 160 portraits throughout his exceptional career. The National Gallery of Art exhibition Cézanne Portraits establishes portraiture as an essential practice for the artist, from his earliest self-portraits in the 1860s; to his famous depictions of figures including his wife, Hortense Fiquet, the writer Émile Zola, and the art dealer Ambroise Vollard; and concluding with a poignant series of portraits of his gardener, Vallier, made shortly before Cézanne’s death.
