He never liked to interact with people. He did like to be isolated and to be busy with his work and not to interfere in others life. He inspired a modern artist generation with his unique method of art.
His origin was Italian and lived in south France. His born was in a wealthy family, his father was co-founder of banking. And his father was the most successful banker of his time. He had a two sister and his mother was of a modern lifestyle she always used to motivate him. His father wanted from him to do lawyer, but he was not interested, to take words of his father he did his law school for two year and then he went to Paris. He spent his long time with his best friend Amile Zola. She was a French writer. He tried to work as a painter for 5 month in Paris but he could not reach to success so he returned to home. He joined a local art school at his home town and he tried to do banking job too but, still unsuccessful so again he went to paris to make his career in art field as a painter. Unfortunately he failed the entrance exam of art school and he did continue his work from Paris and hometown and he submitted his works to Salon Jury. Then he moved to Pontoise in 1872 with Hortense Fiquet. He used to live with her. Still he was doing his painting and spending his time with his idol Camille Pissarro. In 1874 he did his first painting exhibition but nobody liked his paintings. His compositions from the period of working he became close to Camille Pissarro and he reveal that he was influenced by the Impressionist’s en plein air style of painting. In 1880 he move away of his style of painting
He used heavy brush strokes to make his paintings and used to paint on the thick layer paint on canvas. Because he used hasty brush his early work has been called ‘violent’ in nature before he became friends with he spent his time to work in his studio mostly and used to do painting from his imagination. This all happened after meeting Pissarro he was inspired by him, and he used move his painting outside to the nature and began painting from it occasionally. And through the way result he improved his style and technique and it became more structured but he kept using his brushstrokes still thick and heavy. He preferred to work inside with darker shades but his works became brighter in color. In 1870, his compositions became smoother and using his paintbrush. He created ability of shapes on the canvas and use color with large stokes and learned more about own craft. He liked to drawings and sketches before Paul placed his paintbrush to canvas a lot of the work were done on the canvas itself. Cezanne found working from nature to be arduous and for him returning to scene of a landscape was often challenging than he completing the painting itself. Later on in the 1870s he was again influenced by Impressionism. As a modern artist being constantly rejected by the Salon jury he felt some affinity with the group. And after that Paul was never an Impressionist, after working alongside his idol Camille Pissarro and spending time with Claude Monet his color palette brightened up and he began to work en plain air. After exhibiting with the Impressionists twice he ended his relationship with the group due to artistic differences. In his life he became more and more influenced by nature and the beauty of his home in hometown. Cezanne wanted to capture the part of nature.
After all this he was a very famous and he did a huge struggle in life in the field but became a legend. He accelerated a modern painting style and now a days it greed up. He faced a failure in his life but never given up.
