Described by Picasso and Matisse as “the father of us all” Paul Cézanne is considered one of the greatest artists of all time. During his life Cézanne painted almost a thousand works, two hundred of which were portraits. Despite this proliferation he remains the least well known of the impressionists and perhaps the most misunderstood. Cézanne - Portraits of a Life is based on a ‘never-to-be-repeated’ exhibition from the National Portrait Gallery, London; Musee d'Orsay, Paris; and Washington’s National Gallery of Art. These portraits provide the substance of this illuminating film which casts entirely new light on Cezanne’s life and work. Featuring interviews with art experts and conversations with his great-grandson Philippe Cézanne, viewers travel to the artist’s home and studio in Provence. Through Cézanne’s correspondence the film provides a rare understanding of the significance and genius of Cézanne and a key to a true appreciation of 20th century art.
