Origins of Modernism, Mont Sainte-Victoire, France

 


Travel with David to the magnificent landscape of Mont Sainte-Victoire, Paul Cezanne's (1839-1906) lifelong inspiration near Aix en Provence in France. David walks in Cezanne's footsteps, visiting his studio, his family home Jas de Buffon, and the views from Sainte Marguerite toward Mont Sainte-Victoire while describing Cezanne's artistic ambitions to pull art from nature. David demonstrates Cezanne's strategies, from sketch to watercolor to oil. He explains the master's insights into visual perception, his difficulties, frustrations, and his ultimate success, as the grandfather of Cubism and Modernism's most influential painter.
