  • Gardanne, 1885–86
    Paul Cézanne (French, 1839–1906)
    Oil on canvas; 31 1/2 x 25 1/4 in. (80 x 64.1 cm)
    Gift of Dr. and Mrs. Franz H. Hirschland, 1957 (57.181)

    This is one of three views of Gardanne, a hill town near Aix-en-Provence, where Cézanne worked in the autumn of 1885 and most of 1886. The town is observed from a close vantage point in a picture in the Barnes Foundation, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and from the opposite direction in a picture in the Brooklyn Museum. The views anticipate Cubism in their restricted palettes and faceted forms.
