Cézanne at The Courtauld

Last Sunday I trotted off to the Courtauld (never been before) with two of the History of Art gang to see the Cézanne exhibition there. Only a room. Bit steep for a fiver (this causes an argument later in the week), but I get in for free – thank you Art Fund membership. Good though. Those that know tend to rate Cézanne. Those that don’t say “Nice fruit“. I’m somewhere in between. I love Man With Pipe. I’m struggling to see how one of his landscapes could have been seen as revolutionary. Cézanne was somewhere between the Impressionists and the Post-Impressionists. It was an odd place to be. But the guy could paint. Seriously. 7/10
