Château Noir, Paul Cézanne, 1903-1904. Oil on canvas, 73.6 x 93.2 cm. Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Paul Cézanne (19 January 1839 - 22 October 1906) was a French artist and Post-Impressionist painter. Cézanne's work demonstrates a mastery
of design, colour, tone, composition and draughtsmanship. The paintings convey Cézanne's intense study of his subjects, a searching gaze and
a persistent struggle to deal with the complexity of human visual perception.
