Paul Cezanne. Pines and Rocks. 1896-99 Oil on Canvas Museum of Modern Art This simple picture of a little. intimate landscape is a good illustration of Paul Cezanne’s command of the impressionist manner. The scene is of a bouldery way. perchance a hike trail on the side of a mountain. and a few trees that veil the sky in spots of foliages. Cezanne’s method of picture is instead interesting. in that he paints each shot like a home base of colour. making an overlapping mosaic. The pallet he chose is besides singular with bright. about cartoonish sunglassess of pigment that give an implicit in sense of pragmatism to the picture. Looking at Cezanne’s work frequently makes one admiration if Impressionism is a survey of light being cast on objects or of life being cast out from the object.
The overall “feel” of a picture is frequently determined by the manner each brushstroke is applied to the canvas. Cezanne’s work resembles a Mosaic piece. except his blocks of colour are intermixed and overlap eachother. Each brushstroke rests on its ain plane in the painted infinite. giving the painting a sense of deepness unique to the 3-dimensional information of the trees off in the distance and the bowlders on the land. The midst. dark lineation of the trees and stones besides add deepness to the piece. dividing the shaded trail from the bright noon sky. Using a small imaginativeness. one can about pick off single foliages from the green and brown spots of pigment used to stand for them.
Cezanne’s pick of colour is exceeding in showing the peculiar temper in a scene. as shown in this picture. A rich blend of purples. reds. and browns in the stones and tree short pantss nicely compliments the bright blue sky and green leaf. The dull. muted tones of the stones give weight and gravitation to the scene while the light and dark leafy vegetables seem to dance in the air currents of the sky blue background. Lighting and shadows are besides good done to add the concluding touch of deepness to the piece.
