A major international exhibition coming to The National Portrait Gallery in London brings together for the first time over 50 of Cézanne’s portraits from collections across the world, including works which have never been on public display in the UK. One of the most influential artists of the 19th century, Paul Cézanne’s unique method of building form with colour and analytical approach to nature influenced the art of Cubists, Fauvists, and successive generations of avant-garde artists.
Over a working life of some 45 years, Cézanne made almost 1,000 paintings of which around 160 are portraits. This exhibition offers a unique and fascinating insight into this central aspect of his work, highlighting the special pictorial and thematic characteristics of his portraiture including his creation of complementary pairs and different versions of the same subject. Paintings on display will range from multiple portraits of himself and his wife, Hortense Fiquet, Cézanne’s remarkable portrayals of his Uncle Dominique, dating from the 1860s, through to his final portraits of the gardener Vallier, who helped in his studio at Les Lauves, Aix-en-Provence.
