CÉZANNE: PORTRAITS OF A LIFE
From the National Portrait Gallery, London; Musée d’Orsay, Paris; and the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC 
Directed by Phil Grabsky
Run time: 85 minutes 

EXHIBITION ON SCREEN is thrilled to present one of the most talked-about exhibitions of the year. Dedicated to the portrait work of Paul Cézanne, the exhibition opens in Paris before traveling to London and Washington. 

One can’t appreciate twentieth-century art without understanding the significance and genius of Paul Cézanne. Featuring interviews with curators and experts from the National Portrait Gallery, London; Museum of Modern Art, New York; National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC; and Musée d’Orsay, Paris—as well as correspondence from the artist himself—the film takes audiences beyond the exhibition to the places Cézanne lived and worked and sheds light on an artist who is perhaps the least-known of all the Impressionists, until now.
