Paul Cézanne, född 19 januari 1839 i Aix-en-Provence, död 22 oktober 1906 i Aix-en-Provence, var en franskmålare. Han var en av de viktigaste europeiska bildkonstnärerna under det sena 1800-talet och inspirerade bland annat Pablo Picasso och utvecklingen mot kubism.

Paul Cézanne målade mest stilleben av bland annat äpplen och apelsiner, figurkompostioner och landskap från södra Frankrike. Det finns många historier om hans fattigdom och hur han hade problem med att få ihop rätt antal frukter till sina stilleben och där samma äpple fick figurera flera gånger och att de egentligen även var halvätna när de äntligen kom på duk.

Cézanne var sedan barndomen vän med författaren Émile Zola. Dock blev de två ovänner, och Cézanne bröt vänskapen med Zola då han ogillade vad Zola hade skrivit om honom i boken L'Œuvre (Konstnärslif), 1886.

Cézannes landskap var inspiration åt Georges Braque och Pablo Picasso då de skapade den stil som kom att kallas för kubism. Cézanne skulle kunna karakteriseras som bron mellan impressionismen och kubismen, och i målningarsom Mont Saint-Victoire (1885) samt Madame Cézanne (1887) syns impulser som senare plockades upp av både kubismen och fauvismen.

När man ska förklara kubismen citerar man ofta ur ett brev av Cézanne: ”Betrakta naturen genom cylindern, sfären och konen. Allting i rätt perspektiv så att varje sida hos ett föremål eller ett plan är riktat mot en central punkt.”

Going against the objections of his banker father, he committed himself to pursuing his artistic development and left Aix for Paris in 1861. He was strongly encouraged to make this decision by Zola, who was already living in the capital at the time. Eventually, his father reconciled with Cézanne and supported his choice of career. Cézanne later received an inheritance of 400,000 francs (£218,363.62) from his father, which rid him of all financial worries.

In Paris, Cézanne met the Impressionist Camille Pissarro. Initially the friendship formed in the mid-1860s between Pissarro and Cézanne was that of master and disciple, in which Pissarro exerted a formative influence on the younger artist. Over the course of the following decade their landscape painting excursions together, in Louveciennes and Pontoise, led to a collaborative working relationship between equals.

One day, Cézanne was caught in a storm while working in the field. Only after working for two hours under a downpour did he decide to go home; but on the way he collapsed. He was taken home by a passing driver. His old housekeeper rubbed his arms and legs to restore the circulation; as a result, he regained consciousness. On the following day, he intended to continue working, but later on he fainted; the model with whom he was working called for help; he was put to bed, and he never left it. He died a few days later, on 22 October 1906 of pneumonia and was buried at the Saint-Pierre Cemetery in his hometown of Aix-en-Provence.
