Portrait of Cezanne

portrait by Camille Pissarro

Etching of the artist Paul C├ęzanne (1839-1906) by his friend Camille Pissarro (1830-1903).

In this etching, Cezanne is depicted wearing the shepherd’s garment he often wore on cold mornings when he went outside to paint. Cezanne is known for his wonderfully colorful landscapes and was an early proponent of painting in plein air even though he, himself did not enjoy painting outside.
