[edit] Information

A new high-definition television documentary, Cezanne in Provence, explores the deep connection between post-impressionist master Paul Cezanne , credited by many as the father of modern art , and his native Provence, illuminating how the region and its history fostered the painter's genius. Featuring footage of some of the same locales made timeless by Cezanne and his work, Cezanne in Provence was inspired by the major international exhibition of the same name. The program is narrated by Jacqueline Bisset.

Offering expert commentary in the film, the National Gallery of Arts senior curator for European paintings and curator of French paintings provides insights into Cezanne's work and discusses formative influences. C�zanne in Provence also delves into the artist's life in the South of France, from his birth in 1839, through a vital and intensely creative adulthood, to his death in 1906 , one hundred years ago.

The film highlights Provencal locations that were pivotal in Cezanne's life, among them his family's imposing country estate, the Jas de Bouffan, a fundamental presence in his memory and development; as well as the Bib�mus quarry, depicted in evocative paintings of great power; and the Atelier des Lauves, the mountaintop studio Cezanne built to afford himself stunning views of his beloved Montagne Sainte-Victoire, which many consider his signature motif.
