Turn In the Road, Paul Cezanne (1881-1882)
Play • 9 min

Paul Cezanne was an artist who often took the road less travelled, turning his back on the artistic norms of the time, and instead, shifted his gaze and brush to peculiar vantage points of his muse. Cezanne’s Turn in the Road wasn’t the turn in his career that he may have hoped, the artistic roads of change are winding, and because of this, Cezanne’s work wasn’t celebrated until after his death. Eventually, this rebel in life and art became one of the most important figures in modern art, a true turn in the road.

HSBC proudly presents “Beyond the Frame” a look behind the bigger picture of some of the world’s most important Impressionist art. In this season we’re looking at the rebellion of the French Impressionists – it wasn’t all dreamy brushwork, but a movement that was rife with bravery, breaking stereotypes and smashing perceptions. Across this series, we go back 150 years to discover some of the surprising stories behind 6 iconic impressionist artworks, -- one painting per episode.  Warning: this isn’t your usual art history series.
