Landscape by Paul Cezanne (1839 – 1906). Cezanne relied upon the colourman Julien Tanguy of Montmartre to provide him with the exciting new colours which became available in the 2nd half of the C19th. Until the last decade of the C18th only two new colours were added to the Renaissance pallette, viz Prussian blue and cobalt, but in the C19th new colours were being constantly invented. These new colours transformed painting. Impressionism could hardly have happened without them.

Work on the same time on sky, water, branches, ground, keeping everything going on an equal basis.. .Don’t be afraid of putting on colour.. .Paint generously and unhesitatingly, for it is best not to lose the first impression. Camille Pissarro, a quote in 1896, in: Paul Cézanne,
