Cezanne: Portraits of a Life

85 mins.
Directed by Phil Grabsky

Exhibition on Screen is thrilled to bring back one of its most successful ever films, dedicated to the life and work of Paul Cézanne. While CÉZANNE: PORTRAITS OF A LIFE played in Amherst Cinema's Virtual Cinema in 2020, this will be the first time it plays in the theater.

One cannot appreciate 20th century art without understanding the significance and genius of Paul Cézanne.

Filmed at the National Portrait Gallery in London, with additional interviews from experts and curators from MoMA in New York, National Gallery of Art in Washington DC, and Musée d’Orsay in Paris, and correspondence from the artist himself, the film takes audiences to the places Cézanne lived and worked and sheds light on an artist who is perhaps one of the least known and yet most important of all the Impressionists.
