Synopsis

Paul Cezanne: A Painter's Journey by Robert Burleigh

Paul Cezanne (1839-1906) was called the father of us all by Picasso, although Cezanne worked outside of the mainstream for most of his life. For a period, he painted alongside the Impressionists, and was mentored by Camille Pissarro. His father never accepted Cezanne's desire to be a painter, and this rejection possibly played a role in his artistic development. This book tells how Cezanne overcame his father's rejection, critics' scorn, and public rejection to create his art and follow his own inner voice. Children will find inspiration in his story, to follow their own dreams and to believe in themselves.
