London National Gallery: Cezanne in Britain

November 9, 2006 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Cezanne

This year marks the centenary of the death of Paul Cezanne (1839-1906), one of the most influential artists of all time. After two popular exhibitions have delighted visitors in Washington and Aix-en-Provence, France, the National Gallery in London is also celebrating the life of the French painter with a retrospective of his works held in British collections. (Britain now boasts one of the world's most exquisite collections of Cezanne's works, and 40 of them have been selected for this exhibition, both from major institutions and private collections.) "Cezanne in Britain" includes paintings, watercolors, drawings and prints, and covers his wide range of subject matter: portraits, still lifes and landscapes. World-renowned paintings such as 'Bathers' and 'Mont Sainte-Victoire' (National Gallery of Scotland, Edinburgh) are shown alongside rarely seen works from private collections. Until January 7, 2007.
