The Big Trees by Paul Cézanne (60 cm) stretched canvas
48 x 60 cm stretched canvas featuring artwork The Big Trees by Paul Cézanne from the National Galleries of Scotland Collection.
Printed in finely textured artist-grade cotton substrate canvas at 400gsm using a 12 colour giclée, which consistently reproduces image details with outstanding clarity and detail. Stretched and covering a wooden frame, ready to hang.
A late work by Cézanne, this composition presents a close-up of trees, rich in colour and almost geometrical in structure.
Cézanne established the spatial intervals between the trees, while integrating them into a colourful network of brushstrokes, which emphasises the painting's flat surface.
The centrally positioned slender tree draws the eye into the painting between the darker trunks and interlocking overhead branches.
Paul Cézanne (19 January 1839 – 22 October 1906) was a French artist and post-Impressionist painter. Both Matisse and Picasso are said to have remarked that Cézanne "is the father of us all".
