Paul Cezanne (January 19, 1839 - October 22, 1906), the painter of and from Aix-en-Provence, is the bridge from Impressionism to Cubism. In paintings such as the 1885 Mont Sainte-Victoire and the 1887 Mme Cezanne we can see the inspiration for the Cubists and even the Fauvists. To early 20th Century Modernists, Cezanne was the founder of modern painting. Henri Matisse called him "the father of us all". Cezanne and the important novelist Emile Zola were friends from childhood and youth, but broke in later life over Zola's fictionalized depiction of Cezanne in the novel L'Oeuvre (The Masterpiece,1886).
