Paul Cezanne was born on January, 19, 1839 in Aix-en-Provence to a wealthy banker. Paul grew up in South France for most of his life. His father always anticipated for his son to follow in his footsteps and join his business.
Paul Cezanne had a boyhood companion named Emile Zola. They were best friends. Later, Zola gained fame as a novelist and man of letters. When Cezanne went to college, his friendship disappeared. He went to school studying law. After a few years of college, he decided he wanted to become an artist.
He moved to France with Emile Zola. While there, he met Camille Pissaro, who was his very good friend. Cezanne always admired Roman painter Eugene Delacroix, Gustave Courbet and Edward Manet. When he first started, he painted in dark tones. Camille Pissaro was a main inspiration. During 1872-1873, Cezanne converted his dark colors to bright, happy tones. He painted farmlands and rural villages.
Paul Cezanne died on October 22, 1906 in Aix-en Provence, France.
Critics were very harsh to Paul Cezanne. A nameless critic once said, Cezanne is nothing but a lamentable failure. Cezanne was very important. He gave people inspiration to follow their dreams. He struggled to disappoint his father but then made sure his dreams came true.
We believe that this is important because Paul Cezanne continued to create beautiful art, despite the criticism he received. Cezanne was a stimulation in the world. He painted pictures of blissful scenes. It inspired us how he kept going although no one supported him. He persevered in the hardest times. Learning about this artist has taught us that we should never give up no matter what the circumstances.

Critics enjoyed his paintings. Like everyone else, they just laughed and the humor and sophistication of his paintings. There is a flamboyance, a defiant courting risk and an easy dexterity that is an unpredictable output.-Rod Mengham
