Paul Cézanne

French 🇫🇷 1839 - 1906

Paul Cézanne was a French artist and Post-Impressionist painter. His work laid the foundations for the transition from the 19th-century conception of artistic endeavor, to a radically different world of art in the 20th century.

One of Cézanne's paintings "The Card Players" was sold in 2011 to the Royal Family of Qatar for a price estimated between $250 million ($284 million today) and possibly as high as $300 million ($341 million today).
