On January 19th, 1839 Paul Cezanne was born in Aix-en-Provence, in Provence in the South of France.
Today he would be 175 years old! Go Paul!
If the Cezannes were in town I’d invite Paul and his wife Hortense over to celebrate.
I’d serve wine. And probably fruit — though Paul may have been quite sick of fruit as apparently Hortense was quite careless in her housekeeping and left fruit lying around all over the place. At least that’s what it looks like to me.
I mean, correct me if I’m wrong, but don’t you think maybe that skull was a little hint that forgetting to put away the fruit might be getting a wee bit old?
So ixnay on the uitfray, I’d just serve Paul and Hortense wine and cake.
HeARTy 175th Paul Cezanne!
