The Bay of L'Estaque Post #3

The Bay from L’Estaque Paul Cezanne 1886 Oil on Canvas

I chose this painting because I love the way Cezanne uses colors to show depth and dimension. The cool colors in the back and the warm colors in the front show a way of depths to the picture and turns it into a more three dimensional painting that Post Impressionists tried to accomplish. He also uses geometric shapes to paint his paintings and everything in the picture can either be divided into a cylinder, sphere or a cone. Also, the painting only shows art, it doesn’t show the business of the people or any human figure, which makes the viewer appreciate it more.
