ok, so especially in the late work ("Montagne Sainte Victoire," 1904-1906, above left) but as early as "The Bay from L'Estaque" (1886, above right) cezanne begins to collapse the depth of perspective and use line and shape in a way that anticipates cubism. i can see that. and i like these works more than, say, monet or renoir that's for sure. still doesn't seem all that earth-shattering to me.
