by Paul Cezanne.
Cezanne is considered to be one of the forerunners of the Cubist movement and
this tactile picture is a good introduction to Cubism, as the features of the
painting are recognisable by touch, not being a purely visual concept where the
need to use visual experience in order to imagine the scene could be required.
The two men locked in battle over a game of cards are thought to represent the
mental struggle between Cezanne and his father.
