Synopsis

Paul Cezanne by Susie Brooks

Inspiring Artists is a series of children's biographies that tells us what it is that makes some famous artists so important and memorable, not only in terms of their artistic legacy, but also as to their impact on the wider world. When people first saw Paul Cezanne's paintings, they criticised, rejected and even laughed at him! He went on to change the art world forever. His pictures of apples and mountains paved the way for a new approach to painting. Today he's widely celebrated as the 'father' of modern art, inspiring artists as diverse as Pablo Picasso and Jasper Johns. These lavishly illustrated books are a visual treasure trove, with famous paintings alongside lesser-known works. Aimed at readers aged 9+, the content has been expertly checked by the ex-Head of Education at the National Gallery in London.
