A 1903-4 painting in oils, Château Noir, by Paul Cézanne (1839-1906), the French post-impressionist artist. The Cháteau Noir was a collection of faux ruins near Aix in southern France and they tempted the artist into painting them several times, all in a brooding atmosphere of dark greens and blues. Typical of his later work, the paint is here applied in thick, broad strokes that often take a geometrical form. Another feature of the artist's later style is the tendency to leave the edges of the scene unpainted. (Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York)
