    In the fall of 1866, Cézanne painted several portraits of his maternal uncle, Dominique Aubert. He was not a monk, but simply posed in a Dominican habit at the artist's request. In the mid-1860s, the young Cézanne applied paint thickly with a palette knife in order to emulate the paintings of his hero Courbet.
