Paul Cézanne was a complex master who said: "I want to make of impressionism something solid and lasting like the art in the museums". He regularly visited the museum in the small rural town of Aix-en-Provence, and the Musée du Louvre in Paris, while his own collection of prints, reproductions, and gypsum copies served as constant sources of inspiration for his art. Cézanne drew on Classical Antiquity, the Renaissance, Mannerism, the Baroque and Romanticism throughout his career and the exhibition seeks to find an answer to the hows and whys of this.

The catalogue "Cézanne and the Past: Tradition and Creativity" will provide an insight into the development of the master's entire oeuvre.
