Cezanne and the Apple Boy Summary

Cezanne and the Apple Boy by Laurence Anholt

Paul Cezanne was one of the greatest of the French impressionist painters. This delightful book follows his son, also called Paul, as he travels to the mountains to spend a summer with his father. He discovers that his father, a very large man, paints the natural world with a passion that few can understand. But one day they meet an art dealer in a village who offers to try to sell some of the paintings in Paris ... the rest is history.

The reader gains a real insight into Cezanne the man through the eyes of a child - sometimes frightening, fastidious (he won't touch other people), warm-hearted, driven by a passion for his art. And it provides a vivid introduction to Cezanne's work, with reproductions of his most famous paintings incorporated in the illustrations.

Cezanne and the Apple Boy Reviews

This is much more than simply a picture book - it's an engaging look at a great artist, presented in a way that will make the artist and his paintings come alive for children.


Utterly and completely brilliant, and we cannot wait to explore the other stories in the series.
