Described by Picasso and Matisse as the father of us all Paul Cézanne is considered one of the greatest artists of all time. During his life Cézanne painted almost a thousand works, two hundred of which were portraits. Cézanne – Portraits of a Life is based on a never-to-be-repeated exhibition from the National Portrait Gallery, London; Musee d’Orsay, Paris; and Washington’s National Gallery of Art.
The film provides a rare understanding of the significance and genius of Cézanne and a key to a true appreciation of 20th century art. Directed by Phil Grabsky. 1h 30 min. This event is co-sponsored with Washington Art Association.
