Mont Sainte-Victoire

Mont Sainte-Victoire
Oil on Canvas

I chose Cezanne's Mont Sainte-Victoire (1885) because the focus of the painting is the view of the mountain but what caught my eye was the perception of the tree that was right in front of him when he painted the landscape. The tree takes up a large part of the painting even with a mountain and farmlands down below. Cezanne has multiple paintings focusing on the mountain. He uses geometry to describe the nature and different colors for depth.
