  • Le Petit Palais - Three Bathers - petitpalais.paris.fr
    Researchers Disabled visitors Press Corporate Partners Newsletter Three Bathers Paul Cézanne Aix en Provence 1839 Aix en Provence 1906 1879 1882 Oil on canvas 55 x 52 cm Cézanne devoted over two hundred paintings watercolours and drawings to the theme of bathing men and women He started working with this subject in the late sixties and carried on developing it until 1906 sometimes taking several years to finish the largest paintings As the compositions evolve the descriptive elements disappear in favour of construction The stocky figures become the members of a rigorously ordered pictorial assembly and not the representatives of corporeal beauty The Three Bathers at the Petit Palais are arranged in a wooded area where a wide ray of light passes through reflected in the water The slightly oblique and regular strokes submit the forms to the structure of the image Blonde redhead and dark the figures are part of a pyramidal composition which is clearly demarcated by two trees forming an arch The use of a nearly square format which is found in several small format versions reinforces the impression of density and abundance which was felt by Matisse a great admirer of this painting The first collectors to grasp the scope of the pictorial revolution to which Cézanne subjected his bathers were in fact painters Thus Matisse who donated the Three Bathers to the Petit Palais considered this very dense and very complete composition to be very important He had acquired it in 1899 from Ambroise Vollard The dealer had organised the first exhibition of Cézanne s work in Paris four years earlier It was not until Matisse donated this work in 1936 that a composition with bathers entered a western European museum Explore Cézanne s work by watching the video made for the Revelations A digital

  • Le Petit Palais - Arion - petitpalais.paris.fr
    cm Nature plays an essential role in the myth of Arion saved from the waters In order to tell this story Moreau portrays the musician poet as an Eastern prince and surrounds him with craggy rocks borrowed from the works of Leonardo da Vinci The legend of the Greek lyric poet and musician Arion comes to us from Herodotus While returning to Corinth after a trip to Sicily Arion is robbed of his wealth and thrown into the sea by sailors on his ship Thanks to the intervention of Apollo a dolphin rescues him and carries him to the shore on its back The god transforms Arion s lyre and the dolphin into a constellation in memory of the adventure Ancient mythology enabled Gustave Moreau to express the sublime logic of the imagination which guided his work However the poet distanced himself from what he called that hackneyed old classical Greek style and invented a visual universe drawing the daring intensity of his colours and a taste for the arabesque from the most exotic sources ranging from India to Japan In the year in which he painted this work for Jules Clément Chaplain the lithographer sculptor and medal engraver Moreau
