Mont Sainte-Victoire and the Viaduct of the Arc River Valley. Artist: Paul Cézanne (French, Aix-en-Provence 1839-1906 Aix-en-Provence); Date: 1882-85; Medium: Oil on canvas; Dimensions: 25 3/4 x 32 1/8 in. (65.4 x 81.6 cm); Classification: Paintings; Credit Line: H. O. Havemeyer Collection, Bequest of Mrs. H. O. Havemeyer, 1929 / The distinctive silhouette of Mont Saint-Victoire rises above the Arc River valley near the town of Aix. To paint this scene, Cézanne stood close to Montbriand, his sister´s property, at the top of the hill just behind her house; the wall of the neighboring farmhouse is barely visible. Cézanne sought to reveal the inner geometry of nature, to make of Impressionism something solid and durable, like the art of museums. Indeed the railroad viaduct that cuts throught this pastoral scene is evocative of a Roman aqueduct, recalling paintings by Nicolas Poussin.; Provenance: [Ambroise Vollard, Paris, ca. 1899-1901; stock book A, no. 3753; bought from the artist for Fr 250; one of seven pictures apparently sold for Fr 19,000, then shipped June 5, 1901 to Havemeyer]; Mr. and Mrs. H. O. Havemeyer, New York (1901-his d. 1907); Mrs. H. O. (Louisine W.) Havemeyer, New York (1907-d. 1929; cat., 1931, pp. 56-57, ill., as Landscape-Paysage du Midi)
