Какого же именно Сезанна имел в виду автор, спросим себя.
Полагаю, примерно вот этого раннего, где Сезанн работал с Писсарро.
La conversation dates from the period when Cézanne was beginning to reveal the increasing influence of the Impressionism
being championed by a number of his friends and fellow artists, especially his great mentor Camille Pissarro.
In this work, Cézanne has moved away from the dark, bulky brushwork of his earlier pictures,
which often had violent narratives that matched their moods. Instead, La conversation shows a debonair man leaning and talking
to a seated woman in a garden or park, with a body of water, perhaps a river, in the background.
La conversation thus can be seen in the light of some of the glimpsing visions of modern life embraced by the Impressionists,
alongside whom Cézanne would exhibit in their first group show in 1874. In La conversation, there are trees,
a dog and even an urn, allowing Cézanne to underscore the idyll of this scene, a marked contrast to Cézanne's own life,
which had been complicated by his affair with the younger model, Hortense Fiquet.
At the beginning of 1872, Hortense gave birth to their son, also called Paul, further adding to the artist's problems.
Мало того, что девушка залетела, так ещё и сын родился, бедный-бедный Сезанн, пишут на сайте аукциона Кристис.
Потом Сезанн Гортензию разлюбил, хоть и женился на ней через 14 лет.
Но в те годы любил, чему есть по крайней мере одно документальное подтверждение.
