“Art is a harmony parallel with nature”—Paul Cézanne, born this day in 1839. “The Neighborhood of Jas de Bouffan” (1885-87), represents his family’s estate called the Jas de Bouffan, just outside Aix-en-Provence. For the next forty years, this estate, which included a large 18th-century house, alleys of chestnut trees, and views of Mont Sainte-Victoire, afforded Cézanne with many of his subjects. This work becomes an image of a particular place beyond the walls of his family estate, seen in the warm light of Provence on a cloudless summer day. #Guggenheim #GuggenheimCollection #PaulCezanne #Cezanne
