House of the Hanged Man (1873) -- Cézanne was born in the south of France in 1839 -- close friendship with the novelist Emile Zola -- He also studied law -- Paul Cézanne exhibited little in his lifetime -- He a post-impressionist painter -- He chose to focus on an object’s weight and substance -- Cezanne’s methods changed quite considerably -- Early period, “romantic” period (before 1872). -- Fairly thick paints /rapidity and violence-large slabs of colors -- Hence giving them an extremely tactile surface texture. -- painted outside Paris at Auvers, with Pissarro -- He learned the principles of color and lighting of Impressionism and loosened up his brushwork. -- Repeated reworking, over almost the entire surface, characterize this painting -- Canvas texture is practically irrelevant -- In the late 1870s Cézanne entered the phase known as ``constructive,'' -- characterized by the grouping of parallel, hatched brushstrokes -- He continued in this style until the early 1890s -- He did not draw his picture before painting it
