“The south face of Mount Sainte Victoire” is a painting from the Sainte-Victoire series by 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 to the extreme the reflection on the light. The white invades the top of the canvas, while towards the bottom dominate the shadows. The more light is present, the more realistic the figure is. Thus the lower part of the canvas is more like an abstract painting. The presence of lines, geometric and organic shapes creates a striking contrast with the treatment of the other elements of the landscape.
“The south face of Mount Sainte Victoire” is a painting with harmonious colors and composition that could be seen as the star of the show.Discover the artist
