January Study - House and Farm at Jas de Bouffan by Paul Cezanne

Oil on Canvas, 60x73cm
Prague, National Gallery

"In September 1859 Paul Cézanne’s father bought a large country house and farm, called the Jas de Bouffan, just outside Aix-en-Provence. For the next forty years, this estate, which included a large 18th-century house, alleys of chestnut trees, and views of Mont Sainte-Victoire (another of the artist’s favorite sites), afforded Cézanne with many of his subjects. No fewer than thirty-seven oils and sixteen watercolors of the Jas de Bouffan and its immediate environment have been catalogued."

Let's start the year with a painting from one of my favorites!  I love the colors in this one, definite reminder of Provence!
