Cézanne Portraits

Susie Hodge reviews this important exhibition of Cézanne’s portraits at the National Portrait Gallery in London
Self-Portrait with Bowler Hat, 1885–86, oil on canvas, 171⁄214in (44.535.5cm). Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek, Copenhagen

One of the most important artists of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Paul Cézanne (1839–1906) influenced the Cubists, Fauvists, Futurists and successive generations of avant-garde artists, completely changing the path of art. For the first time in the UK, over 50 of his portraits, from collections around the world, have been brought together in an exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery.

That’s about a quarter of all the portraits Cézanne painted during his career and it explores why, how, where and when he painted them, comparing the earliest with his last, considering the changes and developments that occurred in between.
