Cezanne and the Apple Boy Hardback
Illustrated by Laurence Anholt
Part of the Anholt's Artists series
Paul Cezanne was one of the greatest of the French impressionist painters.
This delightful book follows his son, also called Paul, as he travels to the mountains to spend a summer with his father.
He discovers that his father, a very large man, paints the natural world with a passion that few can understand.
But one day they meet an art dealer in a village who offers to try to sell some of the paintings in Paris ...the rest is history.
The reader gains a real insight into Cezanne the man through the eyes of a child - sometimes frightening, fastidious (he won't touch other people), warm-hearted, driven by a passion for his art. And it provides a vivid introduction to Cezanne's work, with reproductions of his most famous paintings incorporated in the illustrations.
