Paul Cézanne, a French painter who was active in the art world of the 19th and 20th centuries, was also called the "father of modern painting" and had a great influence on the avant-garde art of the 20th century. Inspired by Delacroix and Courbet, who represents romanticism, Cezanne at a younger age worked together as a member of the Impressionists such as Picasso, Renoir, and Monet, and then painted paintings that incorporated multiple perspectives on one screen.
