Discover the new exhibition at Orsay Museum : Cézanne's Portraits
Of Cézanne, you probably new his still life paintings, or the series of representations of Sainte Victoire the mountain or maybe the one of the card players. The new exhibitions at Orsay Museum puts in perspective his whole evolution and different artistic eras, through his numerous series of portraits.
Indeed, throughout his career, Cézanne painted over 200 portraits of himself and others. Some subjects such as his wife, Hortense Fiquet, were painted over and over, more than 30 times and others took a lot longer to improve, such as the portrait of Ambroise Vollard which took over a hundred sittings.
If you have never been to Orsay Museum, don't hesitate and go discover it and its wonderful exhibition, it is only a short 15mins walk from our home! No excuses :-)
