This poster is for an exhibition entitled 'Hommage à Cezanne' at the Orangerie des Tuileries, in France. This is a lithograph printed by Mourlot in 1954 and features Cezanne's 'The Bathers'. Unlined with some age-related ruffling and a small fold in the right bottom corner (see photos), from a private collection.
About the Artist: Paul Cézanne was a French artist and Post-Impressionist painter whose work laid the foundations of the transition from the 19th century conception of artistic endeavour to a new and radically different world of art in the 20th century. Cézanne can be said to have formed the bridge between late 19th century Impressionism and the early 20th century's new line of artistic enquiry, Cubism. The line attributed to both Matisse and Picasso that Cézanne "is the father of us all" cannot be easily dismissed. Cézanne's often repetitive, exploratory brushstrokes are highly characteristic and clearly recognizable. He used planes of colour and small brushstrokes that build up to form complex fields. His paintings also convey his intense study of his subjects.
