Paul Cézanne was born in France on January 19, 1839. As a young adult, he
studied law from 1859 to 1861, but at the same time took drawing classes.
In 1861, his love of drawing caused him to move to Paris, where he met some
of the Impressionists, such as Camille Pissarro and Edgar Degas.
Cézanne's work can be divided into
three periods: his Romantic Period, Constructive Period, and his Late
Period. It is his third period for which Cézanne is most famous. It was in
this period that he painted his now-famous landscapes and still-lifes.
