  8. 8. Paul Cézanne Painter (1839–1906) The work of Post-Impressionist French painter Paul Cézanne, born in Aix-en- Provence in 1839, can be said to have formed the bridge between late 19th century Impressionism and the early 20th century's new line of artistic inquiry, Cubism. The mastery of design, tone, composition and color that spans his life's work is highly characteristic and now recognizable around the world. Both Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso were greatly influenced by Cézanne.
