Many people know that Paul Cézanne (1839-1906) was a French painter whose work and influence linked Post-Impressionism and Cubism. What, perhaps, they don't know is that he kept his wide and child secret from his family for over 9 years; that his still life paintings feature 84 apples, 44 pears and 17 lemons; that, in 2011, his iconic artwork The Card Players was sold for more than $250million; and that he died from pneumonia after refusing to stop painting in a thunderstorm.
