Cezanne Doodle

Paul Cezanne (1839–1906) is one of my favorite artist. He was a French Post-Impressionist painter whose artwork was key in the transition from the 19th century classical ways of approaching art to a new and radically different world of art in the 20th century. Cezanne is said to be the bridge between late 19th century Impressionism and the early 20th century’s new movement of Cubism. Both Matisse and Picasso said that Cezanne “is the father of us all.” I must agree!

On occasion I’ll doodle or copy an Old Master for the challenge and learning experience. So here is a Cezanne that I doodled in my doodle a day sketchbook.  Enjoy!
