The Bay of Marseilles

I chose The Bay of Marseilles, an oil on canvas painting, by Paul Cezanne.  I originally picked this painting because of the way the colors all have a blended look to them.  I thought that was an interesting technique and it's what immediately caught my eye.  When I researched this painting a bit further however, I learned that Cezanne was not interested in capturing a moment in time, instead he liked to discover the harmony of the color and form.  This harmony to him was the structure of nature.
