Hillside in Provence
Paul Cézanne

While the specific hillside in Cézanne's native Provence has not been conclusively identified, the wall of angular, jutting rock formations in this painting may represent a quarry, with the cuttings revealing geological strata.

Stylistically, the painting relates to landscapes that Cézanne was painting around Aix-en-Provence in the mid-1880s.
