9780764162824: Cezanne and the Apple Boy (Anholt's Artists)

This brand-new title in Laurence Anholt’s beautifully illustrated children’s series of stories about famous artists recounts a wonderful adventure experienced by Paul, a little boy who is named after his father, Paul Cézanne. The elder Cézanne had been away from home for so long that the boy has difficulty recognizing his father when he joins him on a painting expedition in the mountains of southern France. They quickly become fast friends, and the artist takes great pleasure in painting a portrait of his apple-cheeked son. Most of his paintings, however, are landscapes of the mountain country where they are camping, although the people who live nearby often laugh at the artist’s pictures, which they think are poor. But young Paul admires his father’s work―and he is not alone. A picture dealer from Paris happens to be in the region, and when he sees Cézanne’s paintings, he thinks they are wonderful. Before long, Cézanne becomes famous and wealthy. The story, enhanced with Laurence Anholt’s illustrations on every page, include several that are reproductions of Cézanne’s famous paintings.

From the Inside Flap:

(back cover)
One day, young Paul receives a letter from his father, the painter Paul C zanne, inviting him on a painting expedition high in the mountains of Provence. They haven't seen each other for a long time, but as they follow their rocky path, a wonderful friendship blossoms between the young boy and the gruff, wild artist. "C zanne and the Apple Boy " is a classic tale about fathers and sons and the difficult journey of a great artist.
Complete with reproductions of C zanne's work, this is another inspirational story from Laurence Anholt's bestselling series celebrating some of the world's greatest artists and the children who knew them.

(front flap)
Paul is a little boy who is named after his father, the artist Paul C zanne. The elder C zanne had been away from home for so long that the boy hardly recognizes his father when they go together on a painting expedition to the mountains of southern France. Even so, they quickly become fast friends, and the artist enjoys painting a portrait of his apple-cheeked son. Most of his paintings, however, are landscapes of the mountain country of Provence. The people who live nearby laugh at the artist's pictures, which they think are poor. But young Paul admires his father's work--and he isn't alone. An influential art dealer from Paris happens to be in the region, and when he sees C zanne's paintings, the lives of both father and son change dramatically.
