Paul Cezanne by; Tre Martin

Identify where the artist from? Grew up? Time period? Cezanne was born on January 19, 1839, in Aix-en-Provence, France. He died on October 22, 1906.

Define what happened in their life that was significant? Memorable? An event that stands out? His mother who was "vivacious and romantic, but quick to take offense" was where he drew his perception on life.

Explain the overall meaning of their artwork? His work proves without doubt that painting is not—or not any longer—the art of imitating an object by lines and colors, but of giving plastic [solid] form to our nature." (Albert Gleizes and Jean Metzinger in Du "Cubisme", 1912), this what i believe his artwork means.
