Cézanne: Montagne Sainte-Victoire
“At that moment I felt the magic, and I have felt it in Cézanne’s work ever since.”
- Samuel Courtauld
Paul Cézanne is one of the greatest Post-Impressionist painters and his work had significant influence on Picasso and early 20th century art. His painting, Montagne Sainte-Victoire with Large Pine, is kindly on loan from the Courtauld Gallery in London and will be on display at the Herbert this autumn. To complement the Cézanne we will be showing some of our best landscape paintings by artists like Paul Nash, David Bomberg, LS Lowry and Prunella Clough.
