Cezanne at Tate Modern: 5th October 2022 - 12th March 2023

‘With an apple, I will astonish Paris’, Cezanne once claimed. Leaving his native Aix-en-Provence for the French capital in his 20s, this is precisely what he did. Cezanne’s still lifes, landscapes and paintings of bathers were to give licence to generations of artists to break the rule book. The history of painting was never to be the same again. This career-spanning survey of a pivotal figure in modern art features manty works seen in the UK for the first time. www.tate.org.uk
