Artist's description:

Painted from near Le Tholonet, where Cézanne had his studio in his last years, and from where he painted his favourite mountain. The sunlight was ferocious, and reflected strongly off the white rock, and the watercolour evaporated as soon as it touched the paper, so I worked in big bold strokes, trying to capture the sweep of the landscape and the way the forest seemed to ascend into the mountain, or the mountain to descend into the valley. Cézanne said that painting was a 'harmony parallel to nature', not a copy or imitation of nature. Each painting has to be a new creation, (with the risk of failure) not a formulaic repetition..

Materials used:

Watercolour on Somerset Paper

Mt St Victoire, Aix-en-Provence (1976)
