Cezanne beyond Impressionism Another artist who drew his inspiration from outdoors was Cezanne who also had a distinct style of painting To move away from the style of the broken colour of the impressionists Cezanne devised a system of modulating the colours from a volume of cool to warm or light to dark It seems to me that Cezanne seldom made a line around his paintings Instead the lines would virtually disappear off the edge of the work creating a sense of more volume He also used the same weight of colour in both foreground and background which created an anti-illusionistic effect This technique for example can be seen in Cezannes Still Life with Apples a Bottle and a Milk Pot In this painting we are able to see how Cezanne literally escapes the use of encompassing lines The artist loses the edges in this painting producing an image that passes into the background achieving a sense of colour balance and harmony Unlike the impressionists Cezanne did not aim to capture a glimpse of light Instead light itself becomes part of the colour harmony and decorative contrast Cezannes composition of colours reminds me of a tapestry I also think that it is prototypical for abstract art which would follow later
