October 22 marks the 109th anniversary of Paul Cézanne’s death.
Cezanne’s dedication for his work cost him his life. One day Cezanne was caught in a storm while working in the field. However he continued to work for two hours before deciding to go home. On the way he collapsed and was taken home by a passing driver. The next day he decided to continue working but fainted in the middle. The model called for help, Cezanne was put to bed and he never left it again. A few days later Cezanne died of pneumonia. He was buried at the old cemetery in his beloved hometown of Aix-en-Provence.
Paul Cézanne is a Post-Impressionism artist.
