Hillside in Provence
Paul Cezanne

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

Stylistically, the painting relates to scenes of the landscape around Aix-en-Provence that Cezanne was painting in the mid-1880s.
