Paul Cezanne: PostImpressionist-Cubism

Paul Cezanne like many people who are considered to be the father of a certain craft broke away from the traditional pack. He was not afraid to be different than the impressionist of his time. His post impressionist works made him distinct and appreciated by many, even Picasso. He was considered to be the foundation of bridging the gap between impressionism and cubism. I chose this painting because he did a series of skull painting for a very short period of time. This painting is considered to be is one of his more interesting works. He is said to have never placed his elements this close in any painting. This was true and can be observe in his other still life projects. This painting is also in the face of its viewers in a confrontational way which is also not usual for his work except his self portraits.
