Described by Picasso and Matisse as “the father of us all”, Cézanne is considered one of the greatest artists of all time. Despite this, Cézanne remains somewhat unknown, somewhat misunderstood. This documentary film Cézanne – Portraits of a Life is based on an exhibition of Cézanne portraits at the National Portrait Gallery-London, at Musée d’Orsay-Paris, and at National Gallery of Art-Washington D.C. The exhibition, billed by art critics as “once in a lifetime”, brings together, for the first time since Cézanne’s death, fifty of these portraits from private and public collections all around the world. The film features interviews with curators, art experts and the artist great-grandson Philippe Cézanne.
