About Versus Art:
Verus Art® is a synergy between new technology and traditional craftsmanship, resulting in stunning 3D printed art re-creations that can be enjoyed outside of the museum.
Our mission is to foster a love of art. With royalties from our re-creations supporting museum education and outreach programs we are also proud to be supporting art-rich education and culture by making fine art more accessible.
Years of research have cumulated in the ability to produce the most accurate and authentic re-creations of the greatest masterpieces in painting.
The Verus Art process utilizes the world’s most advanced 3D color laser scanning technology to capture hundreds of millions of data points to precisely calibrate the hue, saturation and brightness of each color while simultaneously measuring the relief of the great master’s brushstrokes. Once the data is analyzed and compiled, state of the art elevated printers re-create the painting.
Before authenticating the edition, the National Gallery of Canada’s Director of Conservation & Technical Research compares the master proof to the original artwork. Assessing color, saturation and brushwork texture ensures the most accurate re-creation has been achieved.
Finally, each re-creation is then completed with a premium, hand-crafted artisan frame by Larson-Juhl.
THE STORY BEHIND CÉZANNE'S PAINTING
When Cézanne gave up his legal studies to become a painter in 1861, one of the first artists he met was Camille Pissarro. The two would stay lifelong friends and Cézanne later credited Pissarro for all that he became. Critically, Pissarro took the younger man to paint out of doors, and showed Cézanne the importance of careful, structured paint application. These factors set Cézanne on the road to become one of the most influential artists of the early twentieth century; his often minimal, analytical and precisely structured paintings changed the way we see the world.
This work was made around the time Cézanne left Paris for the countryside of Auver-sur-Oise, within walking distance of Pissarro’s home in Pontoise. This was in a sense an eventual and full commitment to painting outdoors, and directly from observation.
The artist has set himself a challenge in his selection of viewpoint; a rising, rutted road winding through a jumble of buildings toward a hidden horizon. In terms of touch, we can see residues of his heavy-handed early style, in which he relied heavily on the palette knife to plaster on slabs of paint. This painting shows no evidence of knife work, but he uses his brush to assertively lay on fat smears of bright paint, especially in the blustery sky. Elsewhere however we can see a more considered approach, with serried dabs of paint used to articulate form – these touches would later become the hatched faceting by which he broke down and reassembled his visual world – the hallmark of his later work.
Additionally we can see him making sense of this rather jumbled scene by emphasizing the verticals and diagonals of the buildings and trees, and flattening the planes between them – this tendency toward restructuring perspective also a characteristic of his later work, that would influence the course of later painting, particularly Cubism.
ABOUT PAUL CÉZANNE
Cézanne became one of the most influential artists of the early twentieth century; his often minimal, analytical and precisely structured paintings changed the way we see the world.
Paying extremely close attention to detail, Cézanne adopted an analytical approach to putting on canvas what visual sensations he recorded - with color, line and ‘form’ constituting as one and the same thing. This is also represented in the way he applied his pigments to canvas, to ‘construct’ a piece with fine, methodical brushstrokes to give the painting overall structural integrity.
As his style and theories about art developed over his lifetime, Cézanne is seen today as one of the most powerful links between Impressionism and artistic movements towards Fauvism, Cubism and Expressionism.
