Paul Cézanne , devoted a lifetime to studying the relationship of space, light and matter, he also eroded single point perspective by introducing the notion that a painting can have multiple perspectives points of view. Cézanne viewed his objects as if seen from the entire periphery of vision instead of restricting them to a detailed scrutiny by retina’s focal point.
A minute in the world’s life passes! To paint it in its reality,
and forget everything for that !
To become that minute , to be the sensitive plate ….
give the image of what we see,
forgetting everything that has appeared before our time…
– Cézanne on his work
French Post-Impressionist Painter, 1839-1906
