Delve into the life of the well-known painter with the help of infographics.
Many people know that Paul Cézanne (1839–1906) was a French painter whose work and influence linked Post-Impressionism and Cubism. What, perhaps, they don’t know is that he was best friends with French novelist Émile Zola until a disagreement ended their friendship of 34 years; that his work was rejected by the Salon and mainstream art schools before his unique style received critical acclaim; that he died from pneumonia after refusing to stop painting in a thunderstorm; and that, in 2011, his iconic artwork The Card Players was sold for more than $250 million. This book presents an instant impression of his life, work and fame, with an array of irresistible facts and figures converted into infographics to reveal the artist behind the pictures.

“The Biographic Series is an exciting new collection of biographies about some of the world’s greatest thinkers, writers, artists and cultural innovators. Whilst each book could be read cover to cover, readers are more likely to randomly select pages, stopping and pausing to find out more about the subject . . . The infographics are visually appealing and entertaining, perhaps reinvigorating an interest in the subject . . .” — Armadillo magazine
