Happy Birthday Cezanne

By

Often, I choose to talk about inspiration. I may be redundant, but if you look at art history throughout the ages, you can see and feel this in each and every master artist whom ever lived. For Georgia O’Keefe, one of my favorite artists, it was the desert and often skulls and flower studies, so nature was her muse, similar to how I feel.

Most of the most famous artists throughout history have been inspired by the same topics over and over. Non artists may not see the uniqueness of each, but if you truly study each artist style, you can be transported into the mind or at least the heart of the artist.

Thanks to Google I was made aware of another of my favorite artists having a birthday today. This article is in celebration of the skills, Cezanne one of the most spectacular and inspirational artists in history. 172 years ago, Cezanne was born and a chapter in art history began, quite literally.

In college, I spent many years studying the greatest art styles, artists and their mediums in an effort to understand more about art in general. If you have ever been an art student before you may understand how you begin to develop your favorites and begin picking and choosing which chapters you are going to truly read and which simply require a skim to pass the test.

For me, Cezanne was one of the artists that drew my eye and made me daydream while I flipped the pages of my art history book. In honor of all those days of daydreaming and inspiration, this is my ode to Cezanne, one of the most inspirational artists in history.
