Happy 173rd Birthday Cezanne!

Today marks the 173rd birthday of the French Post-Impressionist painter Paul Cezanne. If Impressionism is considered to be the first modern art movement, then Cezanne would be its outlier, exposing the structure of his subjects and freeing color and form from perspective. His figurative departure from the Impressionists would come to be extremely influential on Pablo Picasso and movements such as Cubism, Expressionism and later forms of abstraction as a whole. Though he may have been known for his landscapes, this grueling quiz is no walk in the park! Don't let that scare you, though, because we guarantee it's fun to take. Plus, you can brag about your score to your friends today... or in the comments section below.
