Like artist's everywhere, Paul Cezanne painted what was familiar to him: his family, his surroundings, the objects in and around his home. He delighted in the most basic elements of colour, size, and shape. This captivating look at the artist's life uses Cezanne's numerous paintings of his studio to explore his methods and technique, and his portraits of his family and friends to reveal Cezanne's personal history. It also points out details from his greatest masterpieces, encouraging young readers to investigate for themselves just as Cezanne explored the brilliance of the French countryside - its light and hues, textures and shadows - in a way no other artist ever has.
