Description of the painting by Paul Cezanne “Man with a pipe”


Paul Cezanne is a great French painter, one of the largest representatives of post-impressionism.

In this picture, the artist seeks to show his rich inner world to all the people who surround him, the whole gamut of human nature. Looking at this not quite a young man, we can immediately see his tired look, which is rapidly looking somewhere in the distance. At first glance, you might think that he is very worried about something, but on the other hand we see just ordinary human eyes with an empty look. You can also see in him courage, perseverance and all the strength of the human spirit. The man decided to sit down to rest after a long day's work and light a pipe. He so easily supports his head with his hand with the hope of a better future, it seems that only the tube saves him.

In this picture, the artist uses mainly dark colors, because he wants to emphasize the dark blue suit of a man, a hat covering the dark hair of a person, as well as objects that surround him, a table and fruits lying on it, a bottle. Looking at a man with a pipe, we see in him the author of the work.

Paul Cezanne put his whole soul into this picture, thereby trying to show all the hardships of life. The man’s left hand is clenched, strong and courageous. The man depicted in the picture is similar to both the peasant and the thinking sage. In the eyes you can see loneliness, devastation, a man tries to understand the meaning of life.

The picture is filled with the inner energy of the author, insurmountable spiritual contradictions, as well as the fear of not being able to show people their own vision, but this numbness was confirmed, an example is Paul Cezanne's picture “A Man with a pipe”.
