The Big Trees by Paul Cézanne greeting card

£2.99

Single greeting card featuring the artwork The Big Trees by Paul Cézanne, part of the National Galleries of Scotland collection. Single card printed onto textured card with envelope, blank inside.

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".
