Description of the painting by Paul Cezanne “Girl at the Piano”


The first thing that catches the eye of the viewer who is watching this picture is the fact that the whole picture is made with a fairly wide brush stroke. You can also see that the picture is made in bright colors, and most likely it was done on purpose.

The figures have full completeness, due to which the whole canvas looks quite holistic and has a logical explanation. Despite the lack of sharpness of light, the girl at the piano looks very bright and is made with great artist power. The piano is written quite authentically, and looks very natural and organically, against the background of the whole picture.

The whole picture seems to be full of calm and tranquility, looking at it you do not experience any wild energy, despite all the mastery of painting, which the master put into the canvas. The whole composition is built quite balanced, and even the fact that a woman sitting on a sofa knits, brings some kind of sadness and sadness. Returning a little to the history of painting, we can confidently say that this painting was the last for Cezanne, with whom he completed a number of portraits and various family scenes.

Despite the fact that there are two persons in the picture, an attentive viewer may notice that the chair standing in the corner and the chair that stands with the back of the viewer are empty and loneliness evokes the whole space. Pastel colors and household patterns make the picture as comfortable and enjoyable as possible, even somewhere "at home."

It is also necessary to add that this picture was preceded by 2 other options that were irretrievably lost, but nevertheless, the artist worked until the very version of the picture that is now in the Hermitage turned out and pleases the eye of many viewers.
