Artist: Paul Cézanne Year: 1880-1 Medium: Oil on canvas Location: National Gallery London. Dimensions: 34.7 × 27 cm
Paul Cézanne was about 40 years old when he painted this self portrait in Paris around 1880–1. He was now middle-aged with a family to support, and the intensity of his earlier self portraits has here given way to a more distant and reflective presence. Although relatively small, the portrait has a monumentality and authority to it. This was a significant period in the artist’s life, as he had stopped exhibiting with the Impressionist group after 1879 and was spending more time in the south of France, away from the capital.
Cézanne stares at us calmly and dispassionately, his face devoid of overt expression. The wallpaper he poses before is not merely a decorative backdrop, but has an important structural role in the composition. By using elements of its pattern throughout the picture, Cézanne has fully integrated himself with his surroundings. Despite the portrait’s simple format, he has created a composition full of subtle echoes and repetitions.

Hanging your painting:
Oil painting reproductions are dispatched un-stretched and un-framed. They come with plenty of excess canvas so they can be easily framed or stretched.
The most common way is to stretch your painting over wooden stretcher bars. The images below illustrate two ways this could be done with blank canvas sides or with painted sides.
You can either get your painting stretched or framed at a local framing store or stretch it yourself easily and cheaply by doing it yourself following our online guide.
