French, 1839–1906. Paul Cezanne was one of the greatest Post-Impressionist painters whose works and ideas laid the foundations of 20th-century art, especially Cubism. The French artist found followers in artists like Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse, who revered his style and were greatly influenced by his ideologies. Cezanne launched the movement of Modernism using his depiction of form and light, hatched-together brush strokes using accentuated colors and outlines. Despite facing criticism for his works, he continued painting instead of ascribing to existing styles. In The Card Players (1890-1892), a series from one of his later paintings, Cezanne captured landscapes, still life and locals in his hometown of Aix-en-Provence in France.
