An 1866 painting in oils, Louis-Auguste Cézanne, by Paul Cézanne (1839-1906), the French post-impressionist artist. Cézanne here paints his father reading the newspaper L'Événement. The paper was not the one his father usually read but the artist has chosen it because his good friend Émile Zola wrote an article in it criticizing the conservativeness of the French Salon and its prejudice against modern artists like Cézanne.
