Landscapes and still life: Cézanne at the Thyssen

//14/02/24
This new exhibition of the work of Paul Cézanne (1839–1906) will underline his strong links to Provence. Landscape is the dominant genre in his work. But Cézanne also attached decisive importance to a genre characteristic of the studio: still life. Cézanne cultivated both genres of painting throughout his career and established a close link between them, incorporating landscape elements into his still life works and bringing the order of still life to his landscapes. The exhibition runs from 4 February to 18 May 2014 at the Museo Thyssen in Madrid.
