About the Object

Cézanne's artistic goals developed through his contact with the Impressionists.  Although he was not interested in rendering particular momentary impressions, he wished to record his "sensations" of nature.  This painting typifies his technique-- suggesting form and volume through interlocking shapes that are rendered with bold, diagonal brushstrokes.  The bright colors deftly evoke the strong light and crystalline atmosphere of southern France.
