Paul Cézanne and the birth of Modernism
In literature, art, cuisine and fashion, the French have been innovative, creative and daring. Join Francophile Susannah Fullerton in an exploration of the lives and legacies of four fascinating French individuals, all born in the 19th century. These brilliant people enriched culture, changed what we do, see, eat and wear, and their influence is around us all to this very day. This is one of a series of 4 lectures about people from different walks of life who each left a lasting impact on society.
Both Matisse and Picasso are said to have remarked ‘Cézanne is the father of us all”, and the one painter whose work other artists longed to own was Paul Cézanne. He didn’t sell much and his work was regularly rejected by the official Salon, and yet he changed the course of art history. Learn about the life, works and influence of this artistic genius.
These sunset lectures are just the way to wind down after a hard day’s lockdown. You might like to enjoy a nice glass of French wine and spend an hour of entertainment and education with Susannah.
