From Provence with love!

After living history for the past few weeks with the passing of our late Queen, Elizabeth II, perhaps a touch of French impressionism will bring some artistic magic to autumn in London? A new exhibition at Tate Modern focuses on the work of Paul Cézanne who joined the emerging impressionists before evolving his own unique style. He too, lived during historic times with political unrest and a continually accelerating way of life. The exhibition is on from 5th October 2022 to 12 March 2023! Tickets are on sale now.

Paul Cézanne left Aix-en-Provence for Paris and stunned the world with his talents and impressive range. From glorious landscapes evoking the light and beauty of southern France, to his paintings of bathers and still life masterpieces, his art changed painting for ever. He helped lay the foundations of the transition from 19th-century conception of art to a new and radically different world of art in the 20th century.
