Mountains in Provence (Hillside in Provence), 1886-1890 by Paul Cézanne

Information about painting

While the specific hillside in Cézanne's native Provence has not been conclusively identified, the wall of angular, jutting rock formations in this painting may represent a quarry, with the cuttings revealing geological strata.

Stylistically, the painting relates to landscapes that Cézanne was painting around Aix-en-Provence in the early 1890s.
