“Night on the Sainte-Victoire ” is a painting from the Sainte-Victoire series by the contemporary artist Clotilde Philipon. In this series of paintings, the artist pays tribute to Paul Cézanne and his stone muse.
In this painting the artist pushes the reflection on light to the extreme. The strength of the black invades the top of the canvas, while colours dominate towards the bottom. The more dark there is, the more realistic the figure becomes. Thus the lower part of the canvas is more like an abstract painting. The presence of geometrically rigorous lines, green, yellow, creates a striking contrast with the treatment of the other elements of the landscape.
“Night on the Sainte-Victoire ” is a colourful painting, and we could see it becoming the star of the show on its own.Discover the artist
