The founder of cubism
The Atelier Paul Cezanne is actually the former workplace of Cezanne, rather than his home. Restored by admirers from the USA in 1970, the building remains much like how it appeared back in 1906, the year that Cezanne departed.
The restorers got the Atelier Paul Cezanne down to a tee, with “his easel with a unfinished picture waiting for the touch of the master’s brush” and “his coat left hanging on the wall”, as stated by Thomas R. Parker.
Cézanne was the major forerunner of cubism. This house, surrounded by a wall and restored by American admirers, is where he worked. Repaired in 1970, it remains much as Cézanne left it in 1906, “his coat hanging on the wall, his easel with an unfinished picture waiting for a touch of the master’s brush,” as Thomas R. Parker wrote.
