Paul Cezanne

Paul Cezanne was a French artist and played an important role in the post impressionist movement, alot of his work is classed as moderism.  ‘Les Joueurs de Cartes’ is an il on canvas painting painted between 1892-1895. his brushwork is clearly noticable he also lacks proportion for the figure on the left. Cezanne’s use of little contrast makes the piece more expressive and abstract than relistic. This is quite modernist as it shows Cezanne’s interpretation on the situation rather than what was really happening.
