The mountain of Sainte-Victoire, a distinctive landmark near Aix-en-Provence, was one of Cézanne's favourite subjects. He never tired of exploring its structure and changing appearance.

This picture was painted in the early 1890s from a position to the south-west of Aix overlooking the valley of the River Arc. Its unfinished state provides some insight into Cézanne's working method and his 'constructive' brushwork.

Foreground foliage, undulating fields, the distant mountain and sky have emerged gradually from a harmonious patchwork of colours applied across the canvas.

Paul Cézanne (19 January 1839 – 22 October 1906) was a French artist and post-Impressionist painter whose work laid the foundations of the transition from the 19th-century conception of artistic endeavour to a new and radically different world of art in the 20th century.
