The Cézanne exhibition includes sixty works on loan from the some of the leading museums in the world such as the New York Metropolitan Museum, the Musée d'Orsay in Paris and the Pushkin Museum in Moscow. But perhaps the most important work in the exhibition which focuses on Cézanne’s influence on painters of the 1900s, is the canvas on loan from the Rome National Gallery of Modern Art - “Le Cabanon de Jourdan” (1906) – which is one of Cézanne’s last paintings. The process of geometrising nature can be seen even more clearly in this work together with an ability to reinterpret everything he saw which was to come to full bloom in the works of Picasso.
This event provides a unique opportunity to see an anthological exhibition, the like of which has not been seen for a long, long time, in a country where public collections featuring works by the French painter are very few in number.
