“Sainte-Victoire Autumn” 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.
The artist’s figurative compositions often incorporate a rigorous geometric dimension. Four zones can be distinguished, isolated from each other by lines that delimit the different parts of the landscape. In the foreground, a large triangle responds in shape and colour to the mountain in the background. In the middle two other triangles, separated by an oblique line, show the vegetation on one side and the houses on the other. The colours are autumnal. The warm tones of the vines contrast with the white sky which announces the first cold spells of winter.
“Sainte-Victoire Autumn” is a small painting with harmonious colours and composition, a look at nature in Provence at rest.Discover the artist
