Landscape in Provence

Instead of reflecting nature accurately, Cézanne intended to arouse in the viewer an impression of mass and depth. On this watercolour, composed out of patches and painted around 1900, the paper left blank is as much a space-forming element as the coloured brushstrokes, and it is primarily these white surfaces, which bring out the vibrating lights of the sunlit landscape.
