Mont Sainte Victoire by Paul Cezanne

Mont Sainte Victoire by Paul Cezanne

This artist can be compared to Japanese artists who were his whole life from time to time to paint one of the most famous mountains of the world – Mount Fuji. In Japan, a lot of artists and photographers, who gave his entire life to display this sacred mountain to the Japanese.

They draw it, and it is never the same. There is even an artist, who all his life wrote a mountain with only one point, and in all that time no one repeating pattern.

So same thing with Cezanne. The thing is that Paul Cezanne was born precisely in these places, in the town of Essex, and because learning to hold a brush in his hand, he sketched the only attraction of the town – the Holy Mount Victoria. And he did it all his life. Therefore, among his works is often possible to see a picture of the same area and the same mountain from different angles and heights. But, however, he did it almost in different styles. This allowed him to make his mastery of brush and pencils. In this painting depicts a mountain in the early fall, just a lot of golden yellow around, and this is likely to fall.

Pay attention to how he portrays the mountain: the soft flowing lines. No sharp transitions, and all somehow smoothly and gracefully. Rough look at home, they are somehow too firmly rectangular underlined.

The author also gives us to understand that the action takes place, most likely, just before sunset, and therefore the shade of the trees and on houses, and therefore completely different lighting mountains. But it is all in soft golden-green colors, because nothing alarming – one positive feeling – calm. And a peace that calms that inspires positive thinking.

On the canvas there is still that special melancholy of autumn, which means that Cezanne was thinking about something good. After all say the same artist paints only what to think about.
