Portraits by Cézanne


Boy in a Red Waistcoat (1888-1890)
"Paul Cézanne (1839-1906) painted almost 200 portraits during his career, including 26 of himself and 29 of his wife, Hortense Fiquet. The exhibition will explore the special pictorial and thematic characteristics of Cézanne's portraiture, including his creation of complementary pairs and multiple versions of the same subject.

The exhibition will also discuss the extent to which particular sitters inflected the characteristics and development of his practise. ..."
