Cezanne and the Apple Boy
Publisher: Frances Lincoln
This picture book tells the story of the young Paul Cezanne. He visits his father where he lives in a little town in the mountains.
While his father paints pictures that the local people don’t like and don’t buy, Paul looks after the donkey and enjoys being with his father.
One day a man comes and takes some of Cezanne’s pictures to sell in Paris. They sell well and soon the artist’s pictures are in demand and the family becomes rich.
The book includes a brief biography of Cezanne and his family and explains why his paintings were so revolutionary for their time.
