Item description for Paul Cezanne: How He Amazed The World (Adventures in Art) by Angela Wenzel...
Young readers will delight in this journey through Provene as they learn about colors, shapes, and composition from a master of modern art.
Like children everywhere, Paul Czanne painted what was familiar to him: his family, his surroundings, and the objects in and around his home. He delighted in the most basic elements of color, size, and shape. This captivating look at the artist's life uses Czanne's numerous paintings of his studio to explore his methods and technique, and his portraits of his family and friends to reveal Czanne's personal history. It also points out details from his greatest masterpieces, encouraging young readers to investigate for themselves just as Czanne explored the brilliance of the French countryside---its light and hues, textures and shadows---in a way no other artist ever has.
