Czanne was born at Aix-en-Provence in the south of France on January 19 1839 Czanne developed artistic interests at an early age His father was a common laborer then became a hatter and eventually a successful wealthy banker He had high expectations for Paul and would never fully accept the notion of his son becoming an artist Sadly his father died before realizing the extraordinary accomplishments his son had achieved He went to school in Aix forming a close childhood friendship with the future novelist Emile Zola From 1852 to 1858 young Cezanne studied humanities at the College Bourbon in Aix Czanne pursued his education studying law in Aix from 1859 to 1861 however his interest and love for the arts would not subside and he continued attending drawing classes Although Czanne knew he was going against his fathers wishes he would not be detoured from his dream Therefore in 1861 he told his father that he was going to be an artist furthermore he was going to join Zola in Paris His fathers never really approved of his decision but eventually agreed to give him financial support Later Czanne received an inheritance which further allowed him to study and work in Paris somewhat comfortably Czanne remained an outsider to the major artist circle of Paris From 1864 to 1869 he submitted his work to the official SALON but the pieces were continually rejected His works were extremely personal in character dealing with bizarre subjects of disturbance and fantasy in austere somber colors and profound intense compositions The years from 1865 to 1870 are often regarded as Czannes early romantic period He met Camille Pissarro with whom he painted outside Paris at Auvers and through her became a part of the impressionist group Czannes life was one of isolation he had few friends and rarely exhibited his work He married and had a son but still was isolated However he would participate in their exhibits
