The Essential Shapes of Everything

Cezanne said "... with an apple I will astonish Paris".

And he did. But it's difficult for the modern eye to see why, because his innovations became intrinsic to the language of western art in the 20th century.

In these paintings we will explore Cezanne's compelling and powerful style.
