About this work
Towards the end of his life, Cézanne wrote: ‘I love above all the appearance of people who have grown old without breaking with old customs.’ This canvas, one of a series of peasant pictures Cézanne painted during the 1890s, conveys this sentiment. The sitter is portrayed with respect and dignity.

Cézanne’s model was probably a farm worker on his family estate at the Jas de Bouffan. He appears on the left in The Card Players. (Permanent collection label)
