A ‘Selfie’ exhibition; Portraits by Cézanne at the Orsay Museum

A ‘Selfie’ exhibition; Portraits by Cézanne at the Orsay Museum

During his career, Paul Cézanne painted nearly 200 portraits, including 29 representing his wife Hortense Fiquet and 26 of himself. Drawn from private collections and prestigious museums all over the world, the works presented in the exhibition Portraits by Cézanne at the Musée d'Orsay range from the artist’s portraits of Uncle Dominique dating from the 1860s to his final renderings of Vallier, who assisted Cézanne in his garden and studio in Aix en Provence, created shortly before the death of the artist in 1906. The chronological approach to Cézanne’s portraiture makes it possible to study its evolution, focusing on the changes in style and method through the years. The exhibition explores the aesthetic and thematic characteristics Cézanne brought to this artistic discipline, and his way of establishing a dialogue between complementary pairings and multiple versions of the same subject. This is undoubtedly the most personal and therefore the most human aspect of his work.
