Directions: Underline the words in the story as you find them, unscramble them and write them in the boxes below. Paul Cezanne was born in France. His father was a wealthy banker and he wanted his son to become a banker. He did not approve of Cezanne's plan to become an artist, but he went on to Paris anyway. After a while, his father sent him a small allowance on which to live. When he got to Paris, his paintings were so rough that none of the official art schools would admit him as a student. At first his paintings were done in dark colors, but Pissarro, another painter, encouraged him to paint out in the sunlight, and his paintings came alive with bright colors. He did not like to be with other people and isolated himself, even from his friends. When he was 47 years old, his father died and he inherited his father's wealth. He complained that he could not paint pictures of people properly, and in fact his still lifes; pictures of objects in settings, became his best works. He was not very successful until in 1895 when Vollard, an art dealer in Paris, exhibited his works and he began to enjoy the success he had longed for. Cezanne considered shapes to be the basic forms; the sphere, cone, and cylinder. Look at the painting, Apples and Oranges and find these shapes in the fruit, the pitcher, and the bowl.
