Of the complex of motives, predispositions, hesitations, and talents that Cezanne may have brought to his pursuit of painting, we are allowed to glimpse at least one clearly: the matter of contact between independent color patches. In the last decade of his life he developed a manner of painting in which he set down separate patches of color in various parts of his canvas, suggesting the forms of the landscape he was studying and yet creating a rhythmical surface which was formally satisfying. It was a mode of drawing, painting, and creating a dynamic composition at the same time; but it required that the patches be brought together.
