Cezanne’s Emphasis on “Construction”
Douglas Lord’s article “Nineteenth-Century French Portraiture” explains that Paul Cezanne’s Portrait of the Artist’s Wife, and other of his portraits are “quite indifferent to his sitter’s face or character : but he minded a great deal about their construction.” In some ways his portraits, including those of his wife, expose more about himself (and his aims) than reveal things about the sitter. – Using one of his portraits of his wife, briefly (200-300 words) discuss Cezanne’s emphasis on “construction,” his interest in form over content. Be specific and cite article as applicable. (You might explore how he used color (rather than light and shadow) to create form, etc.).
