Paul Cézanne

Paul Cézanne (1839-1906)was born to a wealthy family in the town of Aix-en-Provence. Temperamental and shy, he became an artist against his father's wishes. Fellow artist Camille Pissarro introduced him to Impressionism in the 1870s and became a lifelong friend, encouraging Cézanne to paint from nature and providing emotional support. Still, Cézanne grew disillusioned with Impressionism, distrusted fellow artists, and refused to exhibit with the group after their second show. "I wanted to make of Impressionism something solid and enduring, like the art in museums," he once said.
