Paul Cezanne

Jay Rolfe saw a very good "Self Portrait" by Paul Cezanne painted in 1878-1880 at the Phillips Collection in Washington DC. This photo looks a little more yellow than the actual painting because of the reflections from the surrounding yellow wall.

Paul Cezanne holds a special affinity for Jay Rolfe because they both gave up law for art. Rolfe is happy he has more hair than Cezanne does in this painting. Cezanne's "Self Portrait" is the photo of the day.

This is the latest step of artist Jay Rolfe on his Journey From Starving Artist To 21st Century Picasso. You may view some of Jay Rolfe's signature style, his innovative 3-D Shaped Stretched Canvas paintings, on his website at
