CafeLitt 213: Paul Cézanne

Thu 14 Jul 2011, 19:00, by Keivan Khademi, at Bistro Burritoville:3rd floor, 2055 Rue Bishop, Montreal,QC (Map)
As a Post-Impressionist painter, Paul Cézanne (1839-1906) is among the important artists who paved the way to the development of modern art. Many artists and critics believe that modern movements in painting, such as Cubism and Abstraction, appeared mainly because of Cézanne's search for the "underlying structure of the composition". Studying Cézanne's works, Pablo Picasso called Cézanne his "one and only master". We will talk about Cézanne's life and works, his relationship with the Impressionists, and the formal elements in his paintings this week.

About us

CaféLitt is not a place; it is a gathering of minds. We are a group of mostly Persian young students, scholars and professionals who gather every Thursday evening around 19h00 in a café to discuss various subjects and share different ideas, ranging vastly from history to science, from literature to fine arts. We started these gatherings on Jan 18th, 2007. Each week, one of us takes the responsibility of presenting a topic (in Persian, English or French) for about an hour in a subject s/he is intimately familiar with or has an expertise in. Afterwards, the evening turns into a discussion forum and all members of the audience will have an opportunity to ask their question(s) and share their points of view.
CaféLitt is open to all comments, suggestion, collaboration and new ideas. CaféLitt provides an unparalleled opportunity for learning about culture, science and philosophy in a relaxed and friendly environment, and for sharing your knowledge and expertise with like-minded members of your community.
CaféLitt is officially registered as a non-profitable group and is a nonpartisan, nonreligious and nonpolitical entity.
