WEBINAR: Aneta Georgievska-Shine, "Paul Cézanne - Background and Formative Years"


Paul Cézanne: Background and Formative Years

Aneta Georgievska-Shine, professor of art history, University of Maryland

About this series: Paul Cézanne and the Art of Seeing Widely considered as the “Father of modern art”, Paul Cézanne broke away from the artistic tradition by a new way of seeing – and painting, turning even the most mundane of objects into phenomena worthy of wonder.

With this five-part series, we consider the groundbreaking approach of Paul Cézanne in order to gain a fuller appreciation for that new way of seeing – and how it helped him forge a completely new way of representing the world.

In the first lecture, Georgievska-Shine explores Cézanne’s self-fashioning as an artist, taking into consideration his personal background and Provencal identity.

Programs in this series:

Paul Cézanne: Background and Formative Years

Still Life and the Transformation of the Ordinary

Cézanne and the Human Figure: From Portraits to Abstractions

Cézanne and Nature: Change and Permanence

Cézanne’s Legacy on Later Artists: From Picasso to Jasper Johns
