“Sainte-Victoire with yellow lines” 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.
n this painting with a grey sky the artist evokes the winter lights of Provence. The grey colouring invades the top of the canvas, offering the viewer the recognisable silhouette of the most famous mountain in French painting. The bottom of the painting, on the other hand, takes on the appearance of an abstract work. Could the alternating ochre, grey and yellow lines represent the layers of mist that disappear like light veils when the sun finally comes out on a winter’s morning? It is in all this contrast between the two parts of the canvas that one recognises a Sainte-Victoire by Clotilde Philipon.
“Sainte-Victoire with yellow lines” is a bright painting, and we could see it becoming the star of the show on its own.Discover the artist
